A photo of Afia Badu, the lady who lost her life in the bullion van robbery at Adedenkpo Timber Market at James Town near Korle-Bu, has popped up.
This comes after the Greater Accra Regional Police Command paid a visit to her family on Wednesday, June 16, 2021.
The police team visited to commiserate with the family on their loss and assured them of their preparedness to bring the robbers to justice.
Madam Badu, a trader at the location of the robbery, was shot during the attack which also saw Emmanuel Osei, the police officer escorting the van, also shot dead.
While photos of Mr Osei had flooded social media after the news went viral, photos of madam Badu, who is also known as Joyce Amankwaa, had not been spotted.
The visit by the Accra Police Command showed madam Badu’s photo displayed in her house and she looked beautiful.
Aged 40, madam Badu was a hairdresser with apprentices but lost her shop in a demolition exercise in the area. She, thus, resorted to selling non-alcoholic drinks and water.
It was at the same spot she was selling on that fateful day when the robbers struck and took her life in their operation.
She was survived by her husband, Gameli Apau and their three children.
