The East Legon and Greater Accra Central
Police Stations including the Narcotics
Control Commission and Ghana Armed Forces have separately denied receiving complains of the unprofessional conduct of some officers, the Ghana Police Service report revealed.
Although the Ghana Police Service declared their commitment of investigating the alleged unprofessional conduct of some officers, the police indicated in the report that the state security agencies mentioned in the audio taped circulation alleging that some Police officers planted substances suspected to be narcotics in a vehicle and attempted to extort money from the driver stated that they had not received such report.
This comes on the back of an audio tape in circulation alleging that some Police officers planted substances suspected to be narcotics in a vehicle and attempted to extort money from the driver.
But the police in a press release say “investigations into the matter and our initial checks at the stations mentioned in the audio, East Legon and the Accra Central Police Stations, have revealed that no such complaint had been made there.”
It added that the Service has also contacted the Narcotics Control Commission and the Ghana Armed Forces and both institutions have no record of such an incident.
“The investigation is still ongoing, and so far, all efforts to identify the victim of the alleged incident, the said Dr. Patrick Asiedu has been unsuccessful,” the press release added.
The Service has since come out with a contact number for persons with information.
“We, therefore, wish to entreat the victim and any other person with relevant information on the incident to contact telephone number 0200416540, to assist the Police investigations.”
The Police assured that it will not condone any unprofessional conduct among its officers and “is determined to get to the bottom of this matter.”
