Slain Man’s Family Goes On The Offensive, Police Killed Him To Destroy Damning Evidence

The family of a man slain by the police has vowed to go to every length to get justice for him, claiming their relative was murdered to destroy damning evidence against some police officers he had caught right in the act of robbing people.

Albert Donkor, the deceased, is said to have been taken into the bush and gunned down by heavily armed police officers, numbering about eight, after they arrested him at his mother’s property at Kasadjan in the Nkoranza South Municipality on suspicion that he was involved in a robbery attack that happened on the Nkoranza-Kintampo road.

The Reverend Dr. Mathias Sarkodie, the family’s spokesperson, claims the police carried out the execution-style murder of Donkor because he had chanced on a robbery attack involving some police officers and was going to expose them.

“The police know what happened and we are inclined to believe they murdered him to destroy the evidence.”

The Rev Dr. Sarkodie said they would not allow the police to get away with the extrajudicial killing of an innocent person.

They have filed a case at a High Court in Accra to get justice for their murdered relative.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Nkoranza South Constituency of the Bono East Region, Emmanuel Kwadwo Agyekum, has also been demanding punishment of police officers behind the 4execution-style killing.

The heavily armed police officers, said to be numbering about eight, had on Monday, April 25, 2022, reportedly seized Albert Donkor, who they believed was linked to a robbery attack, took him to the bush, shot and killed him and then carried the body in the bucket of police pick-up vehicle to Accra.

The MP called for an independent investigation by an international body to establish the full facts and to ensure that his slain nephew gets justice.

Kwadwo Agyekum rebuked the police for unprofessionalism and said people must be held to account for the cruel murder of a man they had arrested and was in their custody.

He called for all to lock step with the family to demand justice and accountability for the extrajudicial killing, warning that, “it can happen to everybody”.
