Ablekuma robbery: Wife of murdered police officer gives account of last conversation with him

During an emotional interview, Amanda Amoah, the grieving wife of Callistus Amoah, shared poignant details about her last interaction with her husband, who tragically died in a bullion van robbery at Ablekuma Fanmilk in Accra.

Amanda recounted that just before the tragic incident, her husband had promptly sent her money in response to her urgent request.

Recalling the sequence of events, Amanda tearfully narrated, “After attending a program, I tried calling him, but his number wasn’t connecting. At 12 o’clock, I called him and explained, ‘Daddy, please, I’m done. I initially thought I couldn’t complete it, but I managed to finish. They asked me to pay 150 cedis for the biometrics. Can you please send it to me?’ He agreed, but later he called me back and said the network was unstable, so he would send it later. Within 10 minutes, he called me back and said he had sent the money.”

Grateful for his quick response, Amanda withdrew the funds and proceeded with the necessary biometric process, unaware that it would be their final conversation.

“So, I thanked him and hurriedly withdrew the money to complete the biometric process. At 1:40, when I was done and heading home, I tried calling to check on him, but he didn’t answer. I thought maybe he didn’t want to make calls while on the bullion van due to the perceived risk of his duty,” Amanda shared, her voice filled with sorrow.

Shortly afterward, Amanda received a distressing call from her father, informing her that a police officer had been fatally shot at Ablekuma, a route often taken by Mr. Amoah during his duties.

“My dad called and said he had received a message on his phone about a police officer being shot dead in Ablekuma, which was Callistus’ usual route to Anyaa. We immediately turned on the TV, and the news was everywhere,” she added, her pain palpable.

He was ambushed and targeted with multiple gunshots while seated in the passenger seat of the bullion van, which had stopped at a popular fuel station in Ablekuma for a money collection. The CCTV footage capturing the incident went viral, revealing four attackers on two motorcycles specifically targeting the police officer, relentlessly firing until he tragically lost his life.

Amanda’s heart-wrenching account during the interview highlights the immense loss felt by the family and serves as a stark reminder of the risks faced by police officers in the line of duty.
