The Inspector General of Police, David Asante Apeatu, has come under the microscope in the last few months.
This is as a result of the increasing crime rates across the country and the recent kidnapping of teenage girls in the Eastern and Western Regions.
However, the pressure seems to have heightened in the last one week following the violence that occurred during the by-election at Ayawaso West Wuogon on January 31, 2019.
The by-election was marred by a shooting incident which led to some persons sustaining various injuries.
Some macho men in NSC-branded T-shirts allegedly attacked some voters at the La Bawaleshie Presby school polling station.
The attacks by the security personnel have since been widely condemned by the public, civil society organisations and the president, Nana Akufo-Addo.
But here are five questions that the IGP would have to answer with regards to the said violence:
1. Which agency was in charge of the security during the by-election, the police or National Security?
2. Why and who gave the so-called National Security operatives police vehicles to use?
3. The Director-General, Operations, DCOP Alex Mensah, said he was not aware of the involvement of this special National Security forces. How did that happen?
4. What is the standard operating procedure for the use of live bullets in a crowded area?
5. Were all parties made aware of the security arrangements prior to the by-election?
