Police Chief Inspector who died in a motor accident while pursuing robbers goes home today.

The death of former Police Chief Inspector, James Issaka Aromah was one of the saddest news to hit Ghana Police this year. The man who had been in service for 26 years met his untimely demise last month while on duty and set to be interred today. Chief Inspector James Issaka Aromah perished in a motor accident on the 21st of October alongside his colleague, Corporal Nii Osekle Charles on the Tamale-Walewale highway, during a mission to foil a robbery incident.

Three other policemen who were on board at the time of the accident, Constable Ezekiel Quarshie, Constable Akanvariwen Daniel and Constable Iddrissu Gafaru, also sustained varying degrees of injuries but survived. The three officers, led by the defunct Chief Inspector alongside Corporal Nii Osekle Charles were the five-member anti-robbery taskforce, tasked to ensure safety on the Walewale-Bolgatanga stretch, a task he performed creditably well until the unfortunate demise of the two senior officers on duty. James Issaka Aromah is said to be laid to rest today, as his family and the Ghana Police fraternity bid him farwell. 

Inspector James Issaka Aromah joins over 10 fallen officers in 2021, listed on the Ghana Police website and of course they are gone but never will they be forgotten for their extreme dedication and compassion for Ghanaians. 

Meanwhile, the anti-robbery taskforce, under the leadership of Superintendent, Al-Meyao Abass Kwarasey has been eulogised of their vibrant response to rampant robberies in recent times, including a praise from the acting Inspector General of Police, George Akuffo Dampare. Courtesy to the Superintendent, there are now constant patrols on the major routes including the Techiman-Kintampo-Biupe, Atebubu-Kwame Danso-Kajeji, Kintampo-Zamrama-Prang-Yeji in a bid to clamp down the vice.
