Nkoranza: Men in viral photo with victim are not officers – Ghana Police Service

The Ghana Police Service has denied reports that the men captured in a photography with Albert Donkor, the 27-year-old man whose death sparked protests in Nkoranza are not officers of the service.

The claims gained grounds on social media with some Ghanaians raising questions over the late Albert Donkor’s association with the Police in the district.

According to the police, all the men are neither police officers from Nkoranza South Municipality nor from any part of the country.

“Our investigations have revealed that this is a picture of Albert Donkor and his five friends, none of whom is a Police Officer, which was taken at a funeral at Boana in the Nkoranza North District, approximately 20 kilometers away from Nkoranza,” a press release issued by the Service on Thursday, May 26 said.

“We consider this as a calculated attempt by the people behind this mischief to drag the name of the Ghana Police Service into disrepute,” the release signed by Director-General of Public Affairs DCOP Kwesi Ofori added.
