  |   Ghana News

The Family of the police officer who was shot dead in last Sunday’s attack on the Kwabenya Police station wants the state to honour him with a state funeral. A spokesperson for the family, Robert Normesinu Ashilevi, who made the request on their behalf at the ceremony to mark a week since his brother’s passing, said the tragic manner in which their breadwinner died necessitated such an honour.

Mr Ashilevi added that the family is happy with the police’s pursuit of their son’s suspected killer so far . He, however, called on government to use the tragic passing of Inspector Emmanuel Ashilevi to beef up the general security of police officers across the country.

“Taking into account the circumstances leading to his death, the family will highly appreciate it if the state can accord him a state burial. We will appreciate it,” he said.
