What privileges would you like, your entitlement is colossal – COP Kofi Boakye to celebs

At a meeting between creative industry players and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), George Akuffo Dampare, COP Kofi Boakye expressed surprise at some of the demands made by celebrities.

Some senior police personnel, including the police commissioner, were present at the meeting held at the Police Headquarters in Accra on Wednesday, November 10.

During the conference, some celebrities expressed their dissatisfaction with police mistreatment and treatment.

They believe they should be granted certain rights in recognition of their status as national celebrities. COP Kofi Boakye, on the other hand, dismissed the claim, saying that no one was above the law.

"I'd want to point out that celebrities' sense of entitlement is becoming excessive. And I'm not sure what to make of it. To be honest, some of the things you do are revolting. We won't be able to apprehend armed robbers if we can't apprehend pickpockets. No one is exempt from the law. We'll take care of you if you make a mistake and the law needs to deal with you. So that it serves as a deterrent to others."

"What privileges do you want if you desire privileges?" That you can grab a firearm at any time and get away with it? No, that's not going to work. That's something we can't do."

COP Kofi Boakye also stated that it is necessary to define what a celebrity is and who is deserving of the designation.

"How do you define a celebrity?" What does the term "celebrity" mean in a practical sense? I believe we should obtain that because I am perplexed. We're perplexed. Is it true that if you feature in one film or sing one song, you are considered a celebrity? And, as you can see, we have no idea what you want since we are perplexed."
