The Ghana Police service has denied accusations by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that it [Ghana police] was involved in last Monday’s dawn raid of the party’s head office in Asylum Down, Accra.
The Police wish to state categorically that it had no hand in the raid that took place at the party’s headquarters, and that its mandate does not include such nefarious activities,” a statement signed by Director-General of the Police Public Affairs Unit, DCOP Rev. David Nenyi Ampah-Bennin, stated.
The police also noted that an attempt by the NPP to entangle the force with the incident is unfortunate. “… noted with concern efforts to entangle the service with the recent unfortunate incident at the NPP Headquarters, even though there is absolutely no cause to do that.”
“Owing to the investigations and the court case on-going, the Police Administration was not going to comment on the allegation. However it has become necessary to do so, to set the record straight due to the continuous peddling of this falsehood,” the statement further added.
The Police administration assured the general public that “the Service is committed to its mandate of maintenance of law and order, and that it will continue to protect lives and property of all Ghanaians and all persons living in the country without any let or hindrance.”
“While calling on the good people of Ghana to disregard the unfounded allegations, the Police administration is equally entreating persons who have any information on the unfortunate incident to report to the police or any appropriate quarters for the necessary action,” the statement said.
