A 24-year-old man has allegedly been shot dead by uniformed men in a Police patrol vehicle.
The incident reportedly happened over the weekend around 12 midnight on the Accra High Street close to the post office.
Kelvin Adjetey and his friends were reportedly riding a motorbike from Club House when the incident occurred.
Giving an account of events leading to Kelvin’s killing, a friend, Braimah Mohammed said: “According to reports, they said he was on a motorbike going with his two friends when the Police started giving warning shots so the other friends jumped off the bike.
“He was on the bike going when the Police started shooting at him. When he fell down, the other guys were standing behind watching. They picked the body, put in a truck and left. They were returning from club house when the incident happened. Everyone in Adabraka knows he is not a thief.”
There have been similar incidents of the Police mistakenly shooting persons they suspect to be armed robbers.
Just recently, the Police shot dead a man at Akweley, Kasoa.
Outraged residents of the area subsequently demanded a speedy investigation into the incident.
Narrating the incident to Citi News, a relative of the deceased explained that the Police Patrol team chased Richard Hihartro, 36, into his family house to arrest him.
