Hello Aunty Abena,

A police officer who has been following your page did something incredible yesterday, and we want it to go viral.

The police officer named No. 63850 General Constable Stephen Kwasi Sintim of Mankessim FPU Base saved over 30 children in a school bus with their teachers and the driver.

The incident happened yesterday, Tuesday, April 16, 2024, around 03:45 pm at Atinga Junction not far from Ahodwo roundabout in the Ashanti Region.

The said police officer was in his private vehicle when he saw a red long vehicle with the number plate GT 8764-23 crashing into a white school bus of TBM ACADEMY with number plate GE 6331-14 because the road was too narrow.

The police officer immediately and professionally stopped the driver in the long vehicle and also blocked the road while he wasn’t on duty and not in uniform. In a hurry, he rushed onto the school bus and helped over 30 children get down including their teachers and driver.

Immediately they got down, the school bus nearly somersaulted, and when the bus landed on the ground, the car got damaged.

The long vehicle driver saw the scene and got scared of being jailed so he ran away but the police officer gave him a hot chase and arrested him together with his car and took him including the driver of the school bus to the nearest police station that’s Asokwa Divisional headquarters in Kumasi.

IGP needs to see this and reward this police officer General Constable Stephen Kwasi Sintim for his professional and Angelic work done. If not him the children would be unalive with their teachers by now.

God bless the police officer, God bless Ghana Police Service.
