Five Fire Officers Interdicted Over Alleged Disappearance Of GH¢30,000 From Accident Scene
The Ghana National Fire Service has interdicted five of its officers for alleged involvement in the disappearance of an amount of GH¢30,000 from an accident scene at Konongo in the Ashanti Region. The fire officers were said to have made away with the money after working at the scene of a car crash that led to the death of the
paramount chief of Sekyere Kwamang Traditional Area, Barima Bretwum Okyere Bediako II on December 22, 2021. The Public Relations Officer of the Fire Service, A.C.F.O. Mr Timothy Osafo Affum, also said an internal investigative committee is expected to complete work into the matter on Monday. When issues of this nature
happen, a board of enquiry is set up. The officers in the grave offences like what we have now are interdicted so that they do not interfere with the investigation. If we finish the investigations, and they are found culpable, we will also hand them over to the police. If there is no criminality involved, then we will go through our normal processes and give them punishment they deserve.
