DCOP Ken Yeboah who is the boss of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Police Service has urged Ghanaians, especially journalists to desist from publishing security related issues on their platforms and other social media platforms. According to him, doing this gives the chance to criminals to hide from the police.
"I am appealing to the public especially the media that if you hear anything please feel free to come to us cross check your facts before you put it on social media. Sometimes you give the opportunities to criminals and then hide and run away”. He noted this when he was speaking at a press conference in Accra.
On the incident at Ejura, he noted that there are so many videos capturing different scenes from the avenue so the CID is currently investigating those footages to verify whether the military man fired a shot or not. He also noted that there were too many people at the scene who were holding were holding weapons so they will probe into it and found out who fired a shot.
"In respect of videos, these days people put certain videos on social media sometimes which are even not related or did not happen in Ghana. We have a lot of videos which we have gone through but I will appreciate it if you also give me yours so that we compare. Sometimes when you shoot from afar it is difficult to capture the images well. There were a lot of people there with weapons and other things., we are still investigating because we have to make sure that the shooting was done by a military man.
What's your thoughts on this, do you think putting an end to the publication of security related issues help the security agencies to fight crimes in the country?
