A police officer has been killed at his duty post in Buipe.

Constable Ernest Newton Dwamena met his untimely death Wednesday when a truck driver lost control of his vehicle and crashed him, killing him on the spot.

The Ghana Police Service took to Facebook to eulogise the slain officer and said his name will be engraved in gold.

“Like other police officers, Ernest said goodbye to his family and left for duty hoping to see them after the close of work but unfortunately met his untimely death due to the nature of our work,” the post said.

The Savannah Regional Police Command led by DCOP Ebenezer Larbi has visited the family of Mr Dwamena at Kintampo in the Bono East Region to commiserate with them.

The Ag. IGP, Dr George Akuffo Dampare, has also reached out to the parents and extended the condolences of the Police Administration to them.

The Police have, however, vowed to thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to the officer’s death and take appropriate sanctions.
