A police officer from Bole has been shot at the residence of the Ashanti regional police commander DCOP Kofi Boakye, the command has confirmed.
The Ashanti Regional Police PRO ASP Yussif Tanko told Ultimate FM that the incident occurred on Monday evening, but suspect the visiting officer Constable Dennis zMakorge is mentally deranged.
ASP Tanko said the victim went to the commander’s residence at Danyame and demanded to see him, but the guard informed him DCOP Boakye was not around.
