The fight against crime is still ongoing in Ghana as it is in other countries. The mandate of the police is to protect the citizens of Ghana against all forms of threats, attack, robbery and any criminal activity that would tend to cause harm to any citizen.
The police have been trained to protect by using tear gas, hot water, robber bullets and in extreme situations, live bullets. Whenever the lives of the police are threatened, they are supposed to protect themselves by any means even if it is at the cost of the life of their attacker. In certain situations, the police simply shoot at the legs of their suspects in order to hinder them from running, leading to their arrest.
As criminal activities are becoming rampant in Ghana, the Ghana Police Service under its vibrant Inspector General of Police, George Akuffo Dampare has devised several measures to curtail the situation.
Ghanaians have rejoiced greatly on social media as the facebook page of the Ghana Police have been updated with their recent criminal operation. According to the report, two armed robbers have been shot dead, and some other suspects arrested.
Ghanaians reacted in their numbers and below are some of the reactions that Wysopera has identified on the official Facebook page of the Ghana Police.
Jonathan Syme has rejoiced over the issue claiming that no lawyer can grant them bail. Panty-karnival has also celebrated the operation by the police. He claims that life is enjoyable and it would be unwise of him to lay down his life in the name of armed robbery.
Mahamadu has declared his support for the the action of the police, suggesting that they should deal with them all.
In the reactions above, Ghanaians have expressed joy at the action of the police with some describing their action as good while some call it excellent.
Do you think the Ghana Police needs to be commended for their actions?
