The Ghana Police Service has taken a robust exception to the conduct of the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, who was captured on tape threatening to trigger the dismissal of a Police officer on responsibility on the University of Education, Winneba, throughout a pupil demonstration Thursday.
A press release signed by Director General of the Public Affairs Department of the Ghana Police Service, Friday cautioned the MP to watch out in his engagements with police officers once they are finishing up their lawful duties.
“The Police Administration, therefore, takes very strong exception to the behaviour of Mr. Kennedy Agyapong who is a Member of Parliament and advises him to be mindful of his actions towards Police Officers whilst performing their lawful duties”, the assertion indicated.
According to the police, the MP was “seen in an aggressive mood saying he will make sure a serving Police officer was dismissed for no apparent reasons”.
But the Central Regional Police Commander who the police say was on the scene intervened and made it clear to the MP that he had no such powers.
“The Police Administration therefore wishes to affirm the stance of the Central Regional Polio Commander that. nobody wields the authority to cause the dismissal of a Police Officer without law, justification and due process”, the assertion reiterated.
The police administration additionally assures all police officers that it’ll all the time stand by them so long as their actions are skilled.
