Police have announced a GHS10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of suspected robbers who killed a police officer at Mankessim in the Central Region.
The incident occurred around 4:30 am on Wednesday.
The officer, who was not on duty, was found with gunshot wounds at about 200 metres away from a nearby crime scene.
At a fuel station at Mankessim, police responding to a distress call engaged in a gun battle with the robbers.
