A twenty-four (24) year old fake police officer Emmanuel Opoku Agyemang has escaped death at Mbrom a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
The suspect was nearly lynched Wednesday morning November 6, 2017 after the people realized that he is not a police officer.
The Ashanti Regional Police Visibility and Accessibility Command picked information that the suspect who was impersonating as a policeman wearing a police uniform and extorting monies from the drivers at Mbrom.
It took the timely intervention of Police Officers who came to the scene to save the suspect from being assaulted by the angry pedestrians and drivers.
One driver Kofi Mensah told Abusua FM’s Osei Kwadwo that the suspect came to Mbrom early in the morning and started arresting the drivers.
“He told me to show him my license after doing that he told me to give him 20 cedis before he will allow me to go. His attitude even showed that he is not a police officer. He should thank the police officers for saving his life, he would have been dead by now. He would have paid dearly with his life for his criminal action as we were bent on beating the hell out of him,” he said. The Ashanti Regional Police Visibility and Accessibility Commander after interrogation transferred the suspect to the Ashanti Regional Police Command.
The suspect is currently at Central Police station.
