Police chief touches hearts as he offers water to children displaced in Chereponi conflict

An inspiring photo has made its way to social media of the Chereponi District Commissioner of Police (DCP), Chief Superintendent, Henry Amankwaatia, giving water to some children fleeing the ongoing conflict in Chereponi in the Northern region.

Chief Superintendent Amankwatiaa had obviously been trying to offer humanitarian help to the individuals displaced by the conflict.

Chereponi has seen renewed clashes between the two ethnic groups of the Konkombas and the Chorkosis over the second weekend of March, 2019.

Mynewsgh.com reports that one person has died while a number have been admitted in the hospital. A team of police officers and soldiers have been sent to the town maintain law and order.

The conflict led to the torching of dozens of houses rendering many homeless many of whom have fled the community for fear of reprisal attacks

The chief of Wenchike, a small village in the area, Naa Buuba, confirmed the skirmishes in a Starrfm.com.gh report alleging that a Chorkosi man was shot on his motorbike while returning to Togo on Friday, March 15, 2019.

A violent response to the shooting blew out of proportion and the worst possible situation ensued.

The police in Ghana have been trying in the last few months to mould a more public-friendly image. It is not far-fetched to say DCP Amankwaatia's photo with the children is photo opportunity.
