150 armoured bullion vans ready for use by banks from July 1 — ABOG


Alhaji Iddi Sumaila, the President of the Association of Bullion Operators Ghana (ABOG), has revealed that there are 150 bullion vans available in the country. These vans will be utilized by banks starting from Saturday, July 1.

“By 1st of July we will see banks using armored vehicles/bullion vans. However, other banks have not finalized the agreement with us.

“We have about 150 bullion vans in the country. Most banks have signed contracts with us to deploy to them. It goes through a process for the banks to get it and that takes time,” Alhaji Iddi Sumaila said in an interview with 3FM on Friday, June 23.

Alhaji Iddi made this announcement during a discussion about the armed robbery incident that took place on Thursday involving a bullion van in Ablekuma Fan Milk.

“Our prayers and thoughts are with the family of our deceased colleague in particular and all personnel of the Police Service in general,” parts of the Police statement said.

It continued, “We wish to assure the public that we will surely get the robbers arrested to face justice.”
