The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) of the Ghana police service Mr. Oppong Boanuh has sent some powerful message across to all arm robbers who have no positive mindset other than to rob people of their hard-earned money at gunpoint. Mr. Oppong Boanuh was particular about the recent robbery attack in Jamestown, Accra that led to the loss of a police officer, and another attack on a bullion van by another set of armed robbers in the central region within a week. He was quite furious at how police officers put their lives on the line for the protection of the citizenry only to be facing gunshots and stray bullets here and there from notorious armed robbers.
He made it clear that police officers of late are more vulnerable to attacks from robbers than the ordinary citizens who are to be catered for, and that they are more concerned about the situation at hand. The police are not asleep as some people perceive them to be.
The Inspector-General of Police has however assured the general public that, measures are being put in place to bring to put a stop to these barbaric activities by arm robbers. He explained that all banks in Ghana shall provide bullet-proof vans and that, the police will also do well by equipping their officers for that task ahead.
He consequently warned that the robbers who have started this game should know that, the Ghana police are not asleep, and will come after them. Therefore, the only chance, the robbers have is to surrender now before they are caught.
"That is our decision and it is final ", the IGP angrily concluded.
