The Ghana Police Service (GPS) is currently meeting with leaders of faith based organizations.
The meeting is at the instance of the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo-Dampare.
The meeting which is currently underway behind closed doors will highlight issues relating to religion and the law.
The meeting would afford the Police and the religious leaders an opportunity to dialogue, share ideas and have have a common front in confronting some of the challenges that faces both parties.
It is the vision of the IGP that the meeting would help fashion out some arrangements that will foster relations between the GPS and all religions and faith based organizations in the country.
Two distinguished Ghanaian lawyers, lawyer Ace Ankomah and lawyer Samson Ayenini are taking the religious groups through what the law and religion say about their activities.
After their presentations, the religious leaders would be offered an opportunity to engage with the IGP and the service.
In attendance are representatives from the Christian Council of Ghana, Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, Office of the National Chief Imam, Independent Churches Association of Ghana, and others.
The meeting is coming at a time when a prophet who allegedly prophesied about the shooting of Shatta Wale a Ghanaian dancehall artiste, was arrested last week, remanded in prison custody for five days and granted a Ghc100, 000 bail today, Monday October 25, 2021.
