Police constable who forcibly entered Kofi Boakye’s house shot
A police constable stationed at Bole in the Northern region was shot in the leg on Monday evening when he attempted to forcibly enter the official residence of the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Nathan Kofi Boakye.
Constable Dennis Makagor was said to have engaged in exchanges with the armed police guard at the entrance of the police commander’s house.
The incident happened about 6:45pm on Monday. DCOP Kofi Boakye was however not in the house.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the Ashanti Regional Police, ASP Yusif Mohammed Tanko, Constable Makagor demanded to see DCOP Boakye when he got to the gate.
But when he was told he was not there, he persisted and was said to have attempted to forcibly enter the compound of the house.
It resulted in exchanges and the guard shot him in the leg, ASP Tanko told Graphic Online.
He said however that Constable Makagor was not armed but he allegedly attempted to seize the guard’s gun.
According to ASP Tanko, the police suspect Makagor was mentally ill.
The suspect is currently on admission at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
He dismissed reports that it was an assassination attempt gone bad and said investigations were underway.
