We’ll stop escorting your cash if you don’t acquire armoured bullion vans – IGP warns banks

The Ghana Police Service has cautioned banks across the country as far as the transportation of cash is concerned. In a statement issued its Public Affairs Directorate, the Inspector-General of Police on Monday directed banks to ensure that they procure fortified armored vehicles to cart cash within the country.

The press release signed Supt. Sheila Abeyie-Buckman further warned the Service is ready to withdraw their regular escorts if the financial institutions fail to comply with the directive the end of this month.

“The IGP is also reminding the Association of Bankers to provide fortified armoured vehicles for carting currencies the close of June 2021 as earlier agreed between them and the Police Service, else the Police withdraws its officers for escort duties.”

This comes in the wake of rampant robbery attacks on bullion vans in recent times.
