The Inspector General of Police, IGP James Oppong Boanuh asked his critics to have patience while they investigate crime incidents in the country. Majority of Ghanaians want him expelled after the gruesome murder of the young police officer who got killed in the bullion van on Monday June 14.
According to him, Ghana is not heaven and in every society, there exist some level of crime.
“We are doing what we can to protect the people of Ghana. There’s is no society in the world where there’s no crime. Even in the USA, UK and Sweden where they more or les have everything, they still have crime. The only place that doesn’t have crime is heaven and we’re not in heaven” The IGP told journalists in an interview after visiting the family of the young officer who lost his life.
However, many Ghanaians have called for reforms to be made in Ghana Police Service.
The IGP has also hit hard on other security analysts, saying they got it wrong when they tell Ghanaians the police is not on top of their job.
“If any so called security analyst is saying that we are not on top or our game and that’s why these things are happening, he does not not know what he’s talking about” he emphasized
The IGP is over 60years and has to go on retirement but President Nana Akufo-Addo has extended his tenure and minority in parliament is not happy with this development. They’re asking him to terminate all contracts with retired police officers including the IGP.
