Well, an audio recording that has gone viral on social media has revealed some alarming details regarding the crime and other robberies across the country.
The people responsible for the assassination of Constable Emmanuel Osei, according to the man on the tape, are his friends who are also police officers and are on the job.
In his account, he stated that around eight police officers had been arrested for their roles in the crime, all of them were from the same police station.
He went on to say that they were also involved for a failed heist at another site.

They raised an alert, not realizing he was a cop, and he was arrested. He was taken to the Striking Force Unit and allegedly tortured for two days before admitting his involvement.
According to him, the suspect admitted to shooting Constable Emmanuel Osei in the head after he was identified and his name was revealed.
