The Upper West Regional Police Command through the Public Relations Unit Headed by Mr. Gideon Ohene Boateng has opposed a public reaction suggesting some police officers stationed at some points within Wa Municipality, Including Nakore, Kpongu, Tumu and Jonga Road Take bribes.
Mr. Boateng explained that if indeed such happens then the giver and the taker have both committed an offense which is punishable by Law.
He went further to state that the act is an attempt to influence or trap a police officer which is legally a crime, he urged resident of Upper West Region not to attempt giving police officers money adding that once a person is caught in a crime, he or she should not challenge the police but ensure to act accordingly.
He concluded by urging victims to comply with police when they offend rather than rushing in attempt to pay money to the police, this he said is an offense and administratively, any police involved will be dealt with, he added that the giver shall also be put before court.
