Police Officer Provided An All-Expense-Paid Medical Trip To Get Prosthetic Leg

The Police administration says it has provided a fully-funded medical trip to police chief Inspector Mac-Victor Anako, who lost his left leg in the line of duty in 2007.

The assistance was provided through the 6.1 Million Cedis Police Emergency Medical Intervention Fund (PEMIF) which was launched by the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo in January 2022.

Chief Inspector Anako was flown together with his wife to Germany for the treatment, making him the first to benefit from the fund since its commission.

“After the introduction of the PEMIF, Chief Inspector Mac-Victor Anako was flown to Hamburg, Germany to fix a new prosthetic leg to aid his mobility. He was accompanied on the trip by his wife to give him the needed support. The total cost of the trip and treatment were fully paid for by the Police Administration from the PEMIF.”

According to the police, Chief Inspector Anako was shot by armed robbers in May 2007 during an anti-robbery operation at Nsawam. He sustained a gunshot wound to his left thigh leading to the amputation of his leg.

In 2010, the Chief Inspector underwent some surgical procedures but suffered some complications necessitating further medical attention, the police added.

“Two other Police officers who are beneficiaries of the Fund are currently undergoing medical care”, the police said.
