A combined team of officers from the criminal investigation, intelligence and national operations department has been dispatched to Tamale, where the incident took place.
“Occupants of a saloon car, all of them believed to be armed and dressed in a military-like uniform, failed to obey the signal of police officers at a snap check point on the Kumbungu road in Tamale. Instead, they shot and killed a police woman who signaled them to stop, after which they bolted,” a police statement said.
