The Inspector General of Police (IGP), John Kudalor, is heading to Donkorkrom, the centre of a violent protest against police officers, to demand on the chiefs and people to give out organisers of the lethal protest.

The police administration on Friday, August 19, 2016, pulled out officers in the troubled town located in the Eastern Region after irate residents set the police station there on fire in protest over some police officers who fled after being allegedly involved a bullion van attack which led to the death of the driver.

“Policing is a shared responsibility, excuse me to say, they are not from Jupiter, they are not from the sky or Mars. They are people living in the town who carried out the attacks.

“So it behoves on the chiefs and elders there as law abiding citizens, good citizens of this country to give them out because they have perpetrated a crime and must be brought to justice, he said.

Asked what he will do if the suspects are not given out, Mr Kudalor responded saying “crime does not expire. We shall get them any day, anytime.”

He continued:“We the police would also use our resources to smoke them out. So it is not only for the police, all Ghanaians must help to find them. If they are hiding in your town, you have to give them out because they are common criminals.”

Meanwhile the Chief of Donkorkrom, Nana Akuamoah Boateng, has sort to justify the actions of the youth, saying the IGP should rather say something to calm them instead of pulling out the police.

He said: “For the past three years, there has been series of armed robbery cases. We usually attribute this to the Fulanis but the recent incident has taught us that it is not the Fulani people but it is the Police who always dress like Fulanis and attack people on the way. Each time there is an armed robbery and we call the Police, they feel reluctant to come. There is not a single day that a Police has arrested an armed robber. There is not a single day that a Police has arrested an armed robber there.”

“The IGP I would say is not trying to be fair. The people are very angry so the IGP should say something to cool the people.”
