IGP Should Rise Up And Act Now- Security Expert


Mr. David Agbee a security expert and Executive Director of the Ghana Institute of Governance and Security has called upon the Inspector General of Police COP David Asante Apeatu to rise up and prove to Ghanaians that he does not condone any form of security mishap and also send a note of caution to citizens that the law would be fairly applied on anyone who breaks it in anyway.

He further expressed disappointment in the IGP for remaining silent initially on violent disturbances caused by the Delta Force group until they invaded and attacked the Kumasi Circuit Court. According to Mr. Agbee he was very confident in COP Apeatu’s ability to deliver when he got information of his appointment because he has good credentials but what is happening seems to be the total opposite.

Commenting on Judgment given by His Honor John Ekow Mensah presiding judge at the Kumasi circuit court during the Delta Force escapees’ trial to pay GHc2400 each and also sign a bond to be of good character for six months for breaking from lawful custody, he said the punishment was quite soft for the level of crime they committed. He described the sentence as too lenient opining to the fact that such an act has never been heard of in the history of the nation. He expressed worry on how international media have discussed the issue and lamented that the whole saga will remain a dent on the country’s image. Speaking on Agoo fm’s “ene nso biem”, Mr. David Agbee advised Ghanaians to have second thoughts on this issue since every one carries a different fate.
