The Ghana Police Service is mourning the death of two officers, described as highly-trained, who lost their lives in a road crash on Thursday night.
The two were part of a five-member Anti-robbery Taskforce responding to an emergency on the Walewale-Bolgatanga road.
The other three officers are said to be in critical conditions on admission in a hospital in Walewale in the North-East Region.
According to a police statement on Thursday, October 21, plans are far advanced to airlift the critically injured from Walewale for further treatment.
Already, the families of the two victims have been informed about the sad event, including a call by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare.
