The bullion van robbery happened in the early hours of June 14th at Adedenko, a suburb of James Town in Accra.
The robbery took the life of General Constable Emmanuel Osei of the national SWAT unit and an eyewitness identified as Afua Badu, age 40. It also left the driver of the van fighting for his life at the Korle Bu hospital.
A social media post gone viral has captured what seem to be the last message and videos shared by Constable Emmanuel Osei before meeting his death in a gun fight.
The message was highlighting the point that every human on earth will not live forever and that everyone will surely die one day–as if he knew his time was up.
