The Ghana Police Service (GPS) has been calling on citizens to inform the police about unusual events in order to help the police to arrest criminals. People are however afraid that they would not be safe and thus would not want to inform police even if they have been in contact with suspects of crimes.

A person is said to have assisted the police in arresting a notorious criminal suspect in Sekondi in return for GH¢ 50,000.00. The informant however said that he has not been paid an amount (GH¢ 50K) promised to be given to him by the police after he had assisted the police to arrest the suspect. The informant added that he personally arrested the suspect and sent him to the police station but the money promised him has not been paid.

Ghanaians have reacted to this claim. Many do not seem to be surprised by the event while others have also raised concerns that the life of the informant could be in danger after coming out to say this.

Some section of Ghanaians reacted saying that they would never assist the police in arresting criminals or suspects of crimes since a person (the informant) could end up been added to the suspects after providing the assistance to the police.

One account user wrote, "I swear, our securities can never be trusted. And I will never commit suicide by reporting any crime to the police... SHUT YOUR MOUTH TO SAVE YOUR LIFE"
