State prosecutors are unsure when the much anticipated Attorney’s General advice on the case involving the two serving police officers who allegedly attempted to rob a Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB) bullion van at Donkorkrom in the Eastern Region will be ready.

According to Detective Chief Inspector Simon Apiorsornu, the prosecution was still awaiting the AG’s advice on the matter.

The prosecution last month told the court that the docket on the case it had sent to the state prosecutors had not been assigned any attorney.

Again, at the last court sitting, Detective Chief Inspector Apiorsornu said that officials at the AG’s Department had informed him that the docket had been assigned to an attorney.

Although it had been two clear weeks since the last excuse was given, the prosecution said it wanted more time as it waited for the advice.

The trial magistrate, Stephen Owusu, adjourned the case until March 23.

General Lance Corporals Daniel Kissi Abrokwah and Solomon Elvis Mensah are in the dock with their alleged civilian accomplice Hafisu Mohammed aka Danjuma, over the death of Daniel K. Sarpong, 52, the driver of the GCB Bank bullion van with registration number GN 1354-15 in the Donkorkrom robbery case.

According to the prosecution, the two Lance Corporals had the intention to rob the vehicle which had always come to Donkorkrom to supply money to the bank.

“The two accused policemen, who were on duty at the GN and GCB Banks respectively, decided to exercise their plan of robbing the bullion van of any cash it was carrying,” according to the prosecution.

The three, on August 16, 2016 at Mame Krobo, near Tease in the Eastern Region, reportedly conspired and acted together with a common criminal objective to commit crime, to wit, murder.

The two policemen have been slapped with additional charges of attempted robbery and murder.

In the murder case, the prosecution stated that the cops at the same place and date caused the death of Daniel K. Sarpong.

The prosecution disclosed that on the said day, the policemen discussed the plan to rob the van with Danjuma, a cabbie who is their friend.

The policemen, according to the prosecution, waylaid the van at a spot between Tease and Mame Krobo – each armed with an AK 47 assault rifle – at about 10:30 am, stressing that Danjuma drove his vehicle towards Ekye Amanfrom to monitor the arrival of the van.
