The yet to be named officers who were said to be “highly-trained members of the Anti-robbery Taskforce” were said to have died in the fatal accident Thursday on the Walewale-Bolgatanga road.

A statement issued by the Police Service says the two were part of a five-member team that was responding to an emergency on that stretch and that the other three officers are in critical condition.
