Hon. Agyapong has however apologised for the insults he rained on the IGP.

The IGP said they will “go after any individual” or groups whose utterances “poses a threat to the security of this country.”

“This will apply to those who rain unwarranted insults on the leadership of the security agencies in a bid to run them down, discredit and ridicule personalities through the media,” he said.

Mr Kudalor said the security agencies welcome “constructive criticisms” but will not “tolerate vulgar insults from individuals and groups in the name of politics and freedom of speech.”
