Police involved in the alleged killing of Albert Donkor should not be spared – Kofi Akpaloo

Percival Kofi Akpaloo leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana has asked the Police administration not to protect any of their men found culpable in the incident at Nkoranza.

There were allegations that members of the police service picked up and eventually killed a young man who allegedly spotted police involved in an armed robbery at Nkoranza.

The family of a 28-year-old man who sparked the controversy, Albert Kwasi Donkor, alleged that their son suffered police brutality.

The multi-talented footballer and digital television installer is said to have sighted persons he knows to be policemen engaged in an armed robbery. He was supposed to make a police report the next day but was picked up.

The story goes that Albert Donkor went to Busunya, a town in the Nkoranza North Municipality on April 25, 2022, to allegedly work for some of his clients. When Donkor was returning to Nkoranza on his motorbike at about 10pm that fateful day, he was allegedly accosted by armed robbers who manhandled him and took away his laptop, mobile phone and some other items.

After he was freed by these alleged robbers, Albert went home and his parents reportedly advised him to rest and report the incident to the police station the following morning.

 He didn’t get to make the report as the police stormed Donkor’s house at about 1am midnight of  26th April and arrested him accusing him of being involved in armed robbery.

Police officers stormed his Nkoranza home in an unregistered vehicle and while allegedly transporting him to supposedly show the syndicate’s hideout, they shot him dead.

The incident infuriated the youth in the area who attacked Police instalments in the area causing mayhem, fear and panic.

But reacting to the incident, Kofi Akpaloo insist the Police found culpable should not be spared because a life has been lost and justice must be served.

“We should not play politics with everything in this country. What happened at Ejura is the same thing that has happened in Nkoranza. Police who are involved in this issue should be brought to book. If it hasn’t happened to you before you might think that it’s nothing but when you’re close you’ll know how bad it is,” he said on Kumasi-based Hello FM.

Meanwhile, calm has been restored at Nkoranza after a high powered delegation was sent from the Police Headquarters to Nkoranza
