Police in Afram Plains have evacuated the area following threats on their lives from furious residents.

The threat follows the escape of the two police officers who were arrested in connection with the GCB bullion van attack.

The suspects escaped while they were being transported to Nkawkaw from the scene of the incident.

The irate residents have threatened to set the police station ablaze if suspects are not rearrested immediately. They are also demanding that government transfers all the officers at the station.

Background

The suspects were arrested Tuesday evening after the attack on the bullion van led to the death of the vehicle driver while a Police officer escorting the vehicle was also wounded.

The armed robbers attacked the GCB Bank bullion van at Maame Krobo in the Affram Plains South district of the Eastern region, killing the driver of the van.

The heinous incident reportedly occurred on Monday morning at about 10:30am. The robbers fled into the bush after the attack, Affram Plains district commander Superintendent Obeng Dompreh told Starrfmonline.com.

He said the robbers could not succeed with their operation as a result of a gun battle with the police officer on board the vehicle.

After thorough investigations, two Police officers known as Kissi and Fire and a mechanic were arrested for their involvement in the robbery incident.
