YEN.com.gh has gathered that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) David Asante-Apeatu, has caused a massive shake up at the police service.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh, a total of 122 officers have been reassigned with the affected mainly being senior police officers.
About close to 10 of these officers at the Police Headquarters in Accra have been transferred to other parts of the country.
For instance, the public relations officer of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), DSP Olivia Turkson, according to the list, has been transferred to the Marine, Ports and Railways, in Tema.
Also, ASP Patrick Kodjoe Okai, who was at the national headquarters, is now the staff officer at the Brong Ahafo Regional Head office.
Again, DSP Henry N. Agyemang, is now the commander in charge of the Divisional MTTU office at Kibi in the Eastern Region.
The reassignments are contained in two separate lists making rounds on social media dated February 6 and February 7, 2019.
This is the IGP’s first major reassignments this year, after several reshuffles in 2018.
Meanwhile, the police has come under a barrage of attack following the violence that broke out at the recently held Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
President Akufo-Addo had described the situation as “regrettable”, stressing that the police would investigate the matter and punish whoever was found guilty.
YEN.com.gh has published details of a committee which has been set up by the government to investigate the matter.
