Information received by DAILY GUIDE indicated that the Aflao District Police Command received from their Togolese counterpart about the death of the police officer whom they said had gone to Togo to buy the engine when he passed on after suffering from severe heart pains.

The deceased and the mechanic travelled on a Toyota Corolla saloon car with registration number GE 6100 – 15 and when they engaged the owner of the engine, the deceased complained of severe heart pains and was rushed to the Centre Meico Ong Femme Environment Saante – a hospital in Togo – for treatment but was pronounced dead upon arrival.

The Aflao cops detailed to go and find out what was happening proceeded to the hospital where they saw the lifeless body of the deceased in the front seat of the car, and the corpse photographed as a routine procedure.

A Gota handset, Nasco cell phone, police ID card, National Health Insurance ID card, voter’s ID card – all bearing the deceased’s name – and a wallet containing GH¢350 and 7,500 CFA were handed over to the Aflao District Commander.
