Visitation with the family of the slain officer by the Ghana Immigration Service

The family of the murdered immigration officer who passed away last Monday has received a visit from the leadership of the Ghana Immigration Service, led by the Comptroller General.

The deceased officer was shot together with two other cops in Bawku, in the Upper East Region, when they were traveling into town in a private vehicle to have something to eat after work.

Philip Motey, 42, was killed when three immigration service officials were shot at while traveling from Bawku to Missiga.

The other two officers, Eric Ayibiya, 30, and Laurence Afri, 42, are being treated at the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital after being shot many times as well.

In response to this, the Ghana Immigration Service leadership paid a visit to the family to sympathize and offer their sympathies.

Addressing the family, Chief Superintendent Amoako-Atta, Head of Public Affairs at the Ghana Immigration Service, expressed the Immigration Service’s commitment to arrange a dignified funeral for the late Motey.

“We are here to offer our condolences to the family and let you know that whatever it takes to give our departed officer, brother, or son a befitting farewell, we are ready to do that,” they said. “We have lost a gallant officer, you have lost a son, and the country has lost a very hardworking and gallant Ghanaian in the service of his country.”

The late officer’s family could not conceal their sorrow as they could be seen openly weeping over the loss of their adored sibling.
