Policemen arrested for illegally escorting truck with fertilizer

The Brong Ahafo Regional Police Command has arrested two policemen for illegally aiding a cargo truck transporting 390 bags of fertiliser meant for cocoa farmers at Sankore to Kumasi.

The two, Constables Kyei Amoah, 27, and Osei Tutu, 29, are part of the Visibility Department of the Suame Magazine Police Command in the Ashanti Region.

They were arrested following a tip-off by police on duty in Acherensua last Sunday, July 19, 2015.

According to the Brong Ahafo Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Maxwell Atingane, the two policemen were allegedly hired by an agro-chemical dealer in Kumasi to provide escort for a cargo truck which was transporting 390 bags of cocoa fertiliser from Sankore to Kumasi.

Mr Atingane explained that the truck, together with the bags of fertiliser and the policemen, was sent to the Brong Ahafo Regional Police Headquarters in Sunyani for interrogation.

He said the driver of the truck, Banahene Darkoh, 27, said he was asked by his car owner to go to Sankore to load the fertiliser to Kumasi.
