A police officer, Constable Eugene Yelnona, 27, stationed at the National Protection Unit, who was shot dead a couple of weeks ago while on duty, has been laid to rest.

Unfortunately, the mother also died just a day before his death, hence a joint burial for the duo on Saturday, February 20, 2021.

Constable Yelnona on the day of the incident was at the residence of the Togo opposition leader, Silvio Olympio at Pramposo in the Kintampo South District.
