It is another sad day for the mother land, Ghana. The insecurity in the country is fast rising and it has given citizens panic and restlessness. The IGP's response to some recent attacks on the police service, that Ghana is not Heaven where there is no crime, also worsened the confidence that people have in the police as a force to fall on when we feel threatened. Within the month of June, there have been a number of times that certain people within the various security agencies in the country have come out to point out some problems with logistics and equipment they are battling with.
Having had the police in the center stage of discussion on The Seat show on Net2 TV on Monday night 28th June 2021, there were some serious allegations of their knowledge of a Nigerian group that is massively involved in major criminal activities, and their leader on the radar of countries surrounding Ghana, but has found a solace here in Ghana.
As if that was the last of it, another expose has hit the service, with a person sharing his experience with the public on Angel TV and FM's "Anopa Bofo" this morning, Tuesday 29th June 2021 hosted by Kofi Adoma Nwanwani. The man who was identified as "Madibone bebree" due to security reasons, gave some accounts that some Ghana police personnel are friends or accomplices with most criminals and armed robbers in the country. He also alleged that some judges in our courts also have "their men" being criminals. This, according to him, has compromised the security and law system, which gives the criminals power to recurrently continue their activities. Even though the police have encouraged citizens to report any crime and the people involved to them, also back by the whistle blower act for protection, it seems that one may do this at his own peril. Kofi Adoma cited the case of the man who gave information about the killer of Honourable J. B. Dankwa Adu, who is now restless because his life is being threatened and having people hunting him, as an example. The police have failed to protect him, and the family members are also in a dilemma.
According to these accounts, since the police will fail to give protection to the "whistle blower", then who dare tries to be "the citizen" but not the "spectator"? The IGP is therefore called upon to look into these serious allegations and dully eliminate the "police criminals" from the service in order to redeem the good image and reputation of the Ghana Police Service, as people might soon begin to seek other means to protect themselves.
