Asantehene Otumfuo Nana Osei II has expressed concern about the recent rampage of high profile murders including MP’s and other ranking persons in the country, says the situation is creating fear in Ghana and among Ghanaians.
The concern of Otumfuo was directly addressed to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) James Oppong-Boanuh when he paid a courtesy call on Manhyia with his team of officers on Thursday, 15 October, 2020.
“Recently, some criminals have been standing on our highways and killing people with the latest being an MP and others. It is creating anxiety and fear. Some mount roadblocks and rob people of their money” Otumfuo bemoaned to IGP.
Nana Osei Tutu II reiterated to the IGP that, the police have professionally trained to use weaponry in fighting crimes better than the criminals, so they have more skills and knowledge to deal and curtail the recent impediments of MP’s and high profile persons muders.
“You have had the best of training and when you are to discharge your duties, you do it perfectly and should therefore not allow Ghanaians to lose trust in you because you are on top of the game. You can investigate an issue and get to the bottom of it. Do not allow challenges you encounter to discourage you.” He encouraged IGP.
In recent days, Honorable Member of Parliament of Mfantseman Constituency Ekow Quansah Hayford on the ticket of ruling New Patritotic Party (NPP) government, was murdered and killed in his campaign tour in his own constituency.
