Chopper Evacuates Wounded Presidency Security Details To Accra

A military helicopter on Sunday evening stormed the Suhum Senior Technical School, SUTESCO Park in the Suhum Municipality of the Eastern Region to evacuate several close Protection and Police officers from the President’s security detail involved in a deadly accident at Asafo.
The security personnel who sustained varying degrees of injuries were rushed to the Suhum government hospital where they were receiving initial treatment.


This follows an accident that occurred on the Bunso to Asafo Stretch on the Accra to Kumasi Highway when the convoy of President Akufo-Addo which was at top speed was crossed by a KIA Rhino truck, resulting in a collision whilst it was on its way back from Kumasi.


As a result of that one of the drivers, Kwesi Atta, lost his life. Additionally, several close protection and police officers from the President’s security detail sustained varying degrees of injuries and were rushed to the Suhum Government Hospital to receive treatment.
