A former DCE for Jirapa in the Upper West Region, Cletus Seidu Dapila has condemned the police in the country saying that they display unprofessionalism in the discharge of their duties even at critical times.
The former DCE under the John Mahama administration was speaking to Radio Progress Prince Daud Katouri in an exclusive interview on Monday.
His comments come on the back of the recent cry by many Ghanaians following the handling of the murder of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein Suale of the Tiger Eye PI. Many said the police have been lackadaisical in getting the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
Ahmed Divela was one of the key investigators that worked on the ‘Betraying the Game’ documentary which saw the work of over 70 match officials and football administrators across Africa come under scrutiny.
He was also instrumental in Ghana’s version of the project dubbed ‘Number 12’.
His murder on last Wednesday night shook the foundations of the nation respected for press freedom, attracting wild condemnation from the international community.
He said the police should have acted quickly by putting to question the man whose name has widely been mentioned in the heat of the matter.
Some civil society organizations and individuals have pointed fingers at the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyepong, accusing him of compromising the safety of Ahmed.
According to him, the MP has not only disrespected the Ghana Police Service but the integrity of the whole country.
He wondered why someone who is supposed to help the laws work in Ghana is rather behaving in the manner that Kennedy Agyepong is carrying himself.
According to him the police should step up their game and bring the perpetrators of the heinous act to book.
