The policeman who was wounded after a shootout between the police and four suspected robbers over the shooting of a woman at Caprice in Accra has been promoted by the IGP, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare.

According to a police statement issued by the Chief Superintendent of Police of the Ghana Police Service, Grace Ansah-Akrofi, the unnamed policeman had been promoted from the rank of Corporal to Sergeant with immediate effect.

The officer and his squad mates participated in a special operation to apprehend the armed robbers who on December 9, 2022, attacked, shot, and robbed a woman at Caprice in Accra.

The police officer was wounded by the alleged robbers during the special operation, and the gunfire caused many fractures in the bone in his right thigh, necessitating serious surgery.

In a statement, the police claimed that the Police Administration had made the necessary arrangements through the Police Emergency Medical Intervention Fund (PEMIF), which was established in January of this year to guarantee that the injured policeman received the best care possible in Ghana or another country, depending on the circumstances.

The injured policeman was being treated at a hospital when Dr. Dampare, the Interior Minister, and other Police Management Board members paid him a visit.

The officer and every other member of the team was praised by the police administration for their contributions, which resulted in the capture of one of the thieves and the deaths of two others.
