Corporal Isaac Asumam becomes second beneficiary of police emergency fund

General corporal Isaac Opoku Asumam has become the second police officer to benefit from the GHC6.1 million police emergency medical intervention fund (PEMIF) after he was flown to New Delhi, India for medical attention.

The PEMIF, an initiative of the police administration, which was approved and launched in January 2022, by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is aimed at providing full funding for the medical care of police officers who sustain injuries in the line of duty.

Corporal Asuman’s support comes after chief inspector Mac-Victor Anako, who was the first beneficiary, had undergone a similar treatment in Germany.

Corporal Asumam was flown to New Delhi, India on 22 May, accompanied by an orthopedic surgeon at the Police Hospital, to fix a new prosthesis leg. The corporal returned to Ghana on 15 June after a successful surgery.

The corporal was knocked down by a taxi driver on 26 Aprilwhile on an anti-robbery duty within the Accra metropolis. His leg was amputated due to the severity of the injury.

“The police administration will continue to prioritise the health and well-being of personnel of the service through the emergency medical intervention fund whenever the need arises,” a statement from the police service said.
