One of the two Police Officers who were arrested after attempting to rob a GCB Bank Bullion van at Maame Krobo in the Afram Plains South District has been captured by police.

The escape of the two led to clashes between police and angry residents in the district leading to a police station being set ablaze. But the Police has said the arrest of this suspect has brought some calm.

The Afram Plains District Police Commander, Superintendent Obeng Dompreh confirmed the capture to Citi News saying “now we have been able to capture one so the message has gone to them and the people are now calm.”

The escape of the two led to protests in Donkorkrom, Maame Krobo and Tease with the protesters reportedly alleging that the Police allowed the suspects who attempted to rob the GCB Bank bullion van to escape.

The attempted robbery led to the death of the driver of the van after a heated exchange of gunfire between the police officer in the van and the suspects.

The protests in Donkorkrom are said to the most intense with demonstrators besieging two police stations there causing police to flee their posts in fear for their lives according to citifmonline.com.
