The Service also commended the officers for their patriotism, vigilance and dedication to duty.

Also, the driver who gave out his car to be used to pursue the suspect received his share of commendations.

The officer, who is stationed at the Formed Police Unit (FPU) in Accra, refused to stop at a Police barrier at Have in the Volta Region when he was signaled by officers on duty.

As a result, the two promoted officers pursued the suspect, who unfortunately got involved in an accident at the Kpeve Mountain. He got injured on his left hand.

“Police retrieved 84 parcels of compressed dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp from his car. The exhibits have been retained and investigation continues,” a statement from the Police said.
