The lead convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor, claims the Municipal Police Command at the Bono East Region deliberately took a suspect in their car and shot him dead.
He said Albert Donkor’s mother went to see him writing his statement and was killed two hours after she had left the police station.
The Cambridge PhD student insists the victim’s mother was lied to about the whereabouts of the deceased three weeks after his death.
He made the allegations in a Facebook post on Wednesday, May 18.
According to him, the deceased saw the officers committing robbery and reported to the police which led to his killing.
“Albert Donkor was taken out of his cell and shot dead. His mother went to the Police station to see him writing his statement.
“He was killed by the time she returned in 2hours. She was told he was being held at 5 different police stations for three weeks.”
“When he had been killed immediately after she left the Police station. Albert saw police officers committing robbery and reported to the police.
“Friends of the robbers, and they killed him. He died a whistleblower. For days we talked about it. Nothing happened.“
The Nkoranza Municipal Police Command claims that Albert Donkor was an armed robber who died in an exchange of fire with them.
However, the family has refuted the claims, saying he was picked up from home to police custody where he died.
His death has led to some level of disturbances in the community.
On Tuesday, May 17, the area’s youth went on a rampage and attacked the Municipal Police headquarters in a bid to demand justice for Albert Donkor, a 28-year-old trader who was allegedly killed while in police custody.
They freed six other suspects picked up by the Police as armed robbers together with the deceased.
In the said rampage move by the youth, one person has also been confirmed dead whilst nine persons, including three in critical condition, are receiving treatment for gunshot wounds at the St. Theresa’s Catholic Hospital.
However, the police have arrested two persons for their involvement in the attack.
