The Inspector-General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh has told banks in the country to acquire fortified armoured vehicles to cart cash across the country by June ending or have the police withdraw their escort duties for them.
It comes on the back of the killing of a police officer and one other by suspected robbers during bulk cash transfer at James Town in Accra.
A statement signed by the Public Affairs Director of the Service Supt. Sheila Abeyie-Buckman, the IGP urged Ghanaians to provide information on the suspects as investigations are ongoing.
Meanwhile, last year, the Bank of Ghana gave the association of bankers until 2023 to procure the appropriate vehicle for bulk cash transfer.
