The Director-General of Public Affairs at the Ghana Police Service, DCOP Kwesi Ofori, has revealed the service will no longer be conducive for personnel who are engaged in various robberies in the country.


Speaking on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem Wednesday, DCOP Ofori said the service has developed internal machinery through which bad cops are exposed, caught, and subsequently dealt with.

The police administration is determined to flush out all the bad nuts in the service and it doesn’t matter who that person is, we have internal machinery to make sure all bad officers are exposed and that is how these officers were arrested. It is our responsibility to ensure that crime is reduced and every Ghanaian protected,” he said.

His comment comes after two personnel who were among their colleagues allegedly involved in bullion van robberies were killed during an exchange of fire with the Police at Ashaiman in Accra.

Four other officers have also been arrested and will be appearing before the court on Wednesday, March 9, a Police statement said.

The police administration under the IGP, he noted, is ever ready to protect the lives of Ghanaians and won’t sit aloof and watch miscreants drag the name of the service into disrepute.
