The attack on him was a shoot resulting between the police and some armed robbers who had attacked a fuel station in the town Zeen Fuel station on the same day around 12am.
The police were summoned in to save the situation as the armed robbers’ runoff.
They, however, emerged from a nearby bush between 4 to 5 am, killing the police officer who was on his way to work.
The shooting of the police officer has prompted a theory that the robbers were likely to be town folks thereby being able to identify an officer who was not in uniform and killing him in the process.
The body of the lance corporal has since being deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital Morgue with the police intensifying their search for the perpetrators.
