Road Accident

Painful news: 17 police officers have been involved in a terrible car accident.

Another road accident has occurred, this time with 17 police officers involved. According to the report, a commercial Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with the license plate GS 6780-20 that was transporting these officers to their destination experienced mechanical failure.

The commercial car's driver, Kofi Asare, 31, was allegedly attempting to slow down the car while descending the Aperede – Somanya hills when his brakes failed. According to the report this caused him to lose control of the vehicle, and he crashed the car into a ditch on the other side of the road.

The accident happened on November 27, 2021, and the officers in the bus were traveling from Koforidua to Somanya, according to the report. The officers' names and ages have been published and they are G/Sgt Kumi Isaac Anoff aged 32, G/Sgt Anyan Eric Abeka aged 37, PW/Sgt Victoria Vigbedor aged 38, G/CPL Afari Awuku Michael aged 39 and PW/Sgt Padi Gladys aged 39 

Other officers who were unfortunately involved in the accident included PW/CPL Jennifer Agyakum aged 35, PW/CPL Diana Boaduaa aged 39, PW/Sgt Phyllis Obeng aged 39, G/CPL Frederick Ahweren aged 34, G/Sgt Henry Abbey aged 46, G/CPL Godwin Gamor aged 43, G/Sgt Emmanuel Agyei aged 36 and G/L/CPL Abraham Arthur aged 36.

However, four officers in the group were said to have suffered significant injuries and were taken to the Eastern Regional Hospital for immediate medical treatment. These officers are G/L/CPL Nutsua Fabian, G/L/CPL Hannah Offeibea, G/Sgt Wisdom Akagbo, and G/CPL Festus Owusu.

This sad event cannot be blamed for the time being on the driver, who is being treated in the hospital, since the report found that it was caused by a technical breakdown. For the time being, the only thing we can do is pray that all of the victims will recover quickly and return to their families in good health. However, we assure you that as soon as we obtain more information about the issues, we will inform you.
