Policeman on duty killed 10-year-old girl on the spot, details

A policeman under Ghana Police Service mistakenly killed a 10-year-old girl on the spot for chasing an unregistered car earlier today on the Ntankoful-Anaji Highway in the Western Region of Ghana.

The policeman whose name was given as Owusu was driving a private car and was reportedly chasing the driver of an alleged unlicensed vehicle on the Ntankoful-Anaji Highway in the Western Region.

Mr. Owusu who was at his post after seeing a brand new private car with unlicensed registration number wanted to stop the driver for an interrogation.

The driver in the unregistered car however refused to obey the order from the policeman by moving his car away and Mr. Owusu had no option than to chase him to see exactly why he didn't stop the car.

As he chase him, the vehicle the policeman was driving reportedly lost control in the process of chasing the unlicensed vehicle and smashed a tipper truck and also veered off and smashed a 10-year-old girl who was hawking on the road and killed her instantly.

The driver of the unlicensed vehicle is yet to be identified since he escaped immediately after the incident occurred.

According to an eye witnesses at the scene of the accident, the body of the 10-year-old girl was left lying on the road and was later taking to mortuary while the policeman was rushed to hospital.
