Simple Advice- Protect Yourself and Your Family: The Hard Truth in the IGP’s Approach to Crime.

There have been copious criminal cases in Ghana in recent times and that has left many Ghanaians disturbed. I mean, the peaceful and lovely Ghana we knew have metamorphosed into the home of the wicked and heartless. On Monday evening Bible studies, my head pastor was talking about the plethora of human missing, armed robbery, cutting human body parts and all criminal cases in Ghana passionately. He further advised the youth to be circumspect in their pursuit of financial freedom.

Indeed, the acting Inspector General of Police- Dr George Akuffo-Dampare has been up and doing. Since he assumed office, there has been loads of cases ready to keep him very busy. Additionally, there is also a pending case of 4 teenage girls in Takoradi who went missing. There is no news about them yet. But Ghanaians have come to love the new IGP Dampare for his Hardwork in pursuing crime perpetrators with no fear. He has proven that he is the operation man indeed.

He arrested the leader and founder of Glorious Word International- Rev. Owusu Bempah together with his four junior pastors for brandishing guns in public and causing harm to the peace in the vicinity. The police have again busted one prophet Richard Ato Davidson in the Central region for using sperms of men in the church to perform rituals. The current police service is also very friendly because there is constant communication from the service concerning matters of the public.

If you will recall, when some people, alleged to be members of Rev. Owusu Bempah attacked journalists at the court, the police released a communique to calm those journalists and assure them that justice will be served. When there was an MMDCE protest at Chereponi and Odododiodio, the police also released another communique to discourage anyone with similar intention to demonstrate to halt. They also advised all Ghanaians to use the constitutionally stipulated way to register their displeasure. This is why the new Ghana Police which is led by IGP Dr Akuffo-Dampare is applauded by Ghanaians.

However, when it comes to criminal cases, the approach of the Ghana police is not promising. Up till now, there is no case about a crime that the Ghana police has circumvented from happening. All the criminal cases just happen anyhow and even after they happen, the service cannot trace and prevent the perpetrators from doing their evil acts. There is no signal or hint whatsoever. Last Friday, Michael Simmons reported her missing pregnant wife to the Ghana police after the long search by the family proved futile. The police were unable to locate even after the kidnappers called to request money. Today, the 28-year-old missing pregnant woman was found in Axim by one Alex Essien. This Alex Essien guy recused the lady without any police officer’s support. Besides, developing stories even have it that there are over 20 people at the kidnap base. This pregnant woman was able to escape death because she was a twin, thus, the sacrifice frowns on twins.

So, you see, the Ghana police cannot prevent you from being kidnapped, killed or amputated. Although the new IGP and the Ghana Police are working hard to bring some sanity to every part of the nation, we should also meet them halfway by protecting ourselves and that of our family.
