A military officer is currently in detention after allegedly shooting and injuring a policewoman on lockdown duty at a checkpoint at Tema New Town

The Tema Regional Police confirmed the incident and revealed that Lance Corporal Francisca Tenge was shot without confrontation.

It’s however not clear whether the weapon was discharged accidentally.

Police-military relationship in the region has been very cordial as both have played major role in enforcing the law and the current partial lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus in the area.

The victim is currently on admission at Tema General Hospital and is responding to treatment.

This incident comes after a civilian was accidentally shot by a military officer in Ashaiman last week.
