The Member of Parliament for Nsawam Adoagyiri, Frank Annoh-Dompreh has opined that police brutality is becoming one too many.
Reacting to the incident that occurred at the Islamic Senior High School in Kumasi on Monday, June 13, the lawmaker asked the Police Service to should up their professional tactics.
In a tweet, he said, “Just as we love and respect the Police to deal with such matters and particularly ensuring Public orderliness, the Police should up their professional antics & tactics in the handling of such ‘infantile’ challenges..”
The Police in its probe into the matter established that though nobody was hit by a bullet the Police handling of the incident was poor and fell short of our standard operating procedure on crowd control.
“As a result, DCOP Kwesi Akomeah-Apraku who was acting as the Regional Commander has been removed from his position and has been interdicted. Two other officers, ACP Mr George Ankomah, the Regional Operations Officer and ACP Mr Alex Cudjoe Acquah, the Suame Divisional Police Commander have also been interdicted to make way for a thorough investigations into the matter.”
Clinical psychologists have also been assigned to offer psychological support to the students of the school.
