The Ghana Police Service has declared a lady (Naa Judith) wanted for questioning after she took to Twitter to lament the shooting to death of her father by people she described as “trigger-happy hoodlums parading as Ghana police officers”.
According to the law enforcement agency, the deceased who the lady identified on Twitter as Naa Judith claimed is her father was a suspected armed robber who got shot by police officers after he shot one of them first.
The Police Service said they seized 3000 AK47 ammunition from the alleged armed robber at Ntoaso, near Nsawam in the Eastern region.
The lady with the Twitter handle @realnaajudith had taken to the platform to post photos of her father’s house in which he was allegedly killed by police officers.
She had alleged that he was shot to death because “he had video evidence on his phone on the killing of 4 guys by the police 2months ago”
@realnaajudith wrote on Twitter: “29th June 2021 3 pm trigger-happy hoodlums parading as Ghana police officers went to my dad’s house, shot & killed him because he had video evidence on his phone on the killing of 4 guys by the police 2months ago!!! I am dumbfounded! WtF is going on Ghana?”
But the Ghana Police Service has dismissed the claim in a reply to her tweet, saying the very pictures she made reference to were similar to those of a house in which they shot a suspected armed robber.
“These pictures show a place similar to the place at Ntoaso in the Eastern region where police arrested armed robbers and retrieved several arms and ammunition including about 3000 AK 47 ammunition. This was in the News from the police briefing at the CID on 30th June 2021,” the police said in reply to Naa Judith’s tweet “The man who shot one of the officers was also shot by the Police.”
The service then went further to ask if Naa Judith’s father was the armed robber.
