The post has drawn a lot of reactions as most people are pushing for him to be recruited to continue doing what he loves.

Eugene Boadi Mc who knows him said he volunteers in the community and does what the police are mostly assigned to do.

I know him well, he use to stand with the police at the Asuofuo barrier and serving his duty as a volunteer in our community, sometimes I could see the police sitting down and he will stop the cars checking those without nose masks.

Prince Boateng who happens to know him said he always doubted if he is really a policeman.

I said it , whenever I see him on his bike, the only question comes to mind “is he really a policeman “ but finally…upon all, he’s very serious all the time with the job. I think he should be employed so far as he did not commit any crime ….
