A female police officer has been shot by a military officer at Tema Newtown.
The police officer identified as Lance Corporal Francisca Tenge was on ‘Operation COVID-Safety’ duties with the soldier at the same checkpoint when the incident occurred.
She sustained injuries in the leg and knee.
She is currently responding to treatment at the Tema General Hospital.
It still remains unclear why the soldier discharged his weapon but GhanaXtra.com sources reveal that the incident happened unintentionally.
Meanwhile, we are reliably informed that the soldier has been removed from duty post and placed under military detention.
