Anybody who offers information that would lead to the arrest of some criminals who murdered two police officers in Zuarungu, Upper East Region, stands to gain GHS50,000 as a reward, IGP George Akuffo Dampare has promised.

He announced the bounty on Thursday, 16 December 2021 when he arrived in Zuarungu to mourn with the bereaved families.
