Police play “Tsaskele” with Chief over his Missing Car

When his Chinese make pick-up vehicle Dongfeng, with Registration number GS 914-10 was towed to the Mallam Police Station on September 14, 2020, pending investigations, little did he know that the car could get missing under mysterious circumstances.

Nii Boye I, Seintse of Gbawe Sakumono, said all efforts to trace the car after it had mysteriously gotten missing from the station has proved futile as they keep on tossing him from one station to another in what he termed a “Tsaskele” or chess game.

Narrating his ordeal to ghananewsonline.com.gh, Nii Boye I, said on that fateful day, he was driving his car via the Police Post at Mallam Junction where he was attacked by a marauding mob believed to be led by one Pampanku, who is also laying claim to be Chief of the area, i.e Mallam Junction and its environs.

Nii Boye stated that in the process, he was dragged out of his car and beaten to pulp and the windscreen of his car smashed by his attackers. He pointed out that but for the timely intervention of the Police, led by one Baba, his attackers would have finished him at the scene.

Locked-Up at Odorkor

The embattled chief told this journalist that his bruised condition notwithstanding, he was locked-up at the station overnight. He said it was later the following day that he was granted bail before attending hospital. But even then, he had to beg for a medical form from the Police.

He said that on hearing the case, Commander of the Mallam Police Station, Yaw Obeng, had the smashed car towed to the Mallam Police Station in the custody of the Police ever since.

The Chief maintained that on June 4, 2021, he had information that his car was no longer at the station. He said that upon receiving the information, he rushed to the station to find out the veracity but the car was not there. He said when he enquired from the Acting Officer in Charge, Chief Inspector Asamanin (as the substantive, Obeng has passed on to glory), he was told that an order from above had come for the release of the car. Our information was that the car had been released for auction.

According to the Seintse, Nii Boye I, popularly known as Adam Nana; with this answer, he went to the Odorkor Police Station and before several officers where, he was assured that investigations would be conducted into the whereabouts of the car.
