The Ghana Police Service has said that people who go to the bank to withdraw huge sums of money must alert them for an escort.

The spokesperson of the Tema Regional Police Service, Joseph Benefo Darkwa, said the police are ready and willing to provide escort services for people who carry huge sums if they request it.

This follows a robbery incident that occurred at Tema in the Greater Accra Region on Wednesday (February 28, 2018).

The armed robbers shot and killed a Lebanese businessman who had gone to cash Gh¢200,000 from the bank.

The deceased Ahmed Safiadeen, aged 54, is a cashier at Delta Agro Company. He had gone to withdraw money from the Tema Industrial Area branch of the Zenith Bank for the payment of salaries of workers and other factory expenses of the company.

Ghanaians are currently living in fear following the increasing armed robbery operations in the country.

In a related development, the minority in Parliament has called for the immediate nationwide deployment of a joint military and police taskforce.

However, Security Analyst Dr Aning said that will not be needed if government equips the police.
