Ghana police officers are bogus - Kennedy Agyapong

Kennedy Agyapong said criminals in the country are working hand in hand with senior police officers.

He said criminals in the country are working hand in hand with senior police officers.

His comments come at the back of police officers killed in the discharge of their duties to protect lives and property.

The number of officers killed each year during the period in 2013 is thirteen; 2014 – eleven; 2015 – seven; 2016 – six; 2017 – seven and 2018 – four.

These police officers died in several circumstances, including during exchange of fire with armed robbers, motor accidents, stabbing, being run over by vehicles, and police crossfire.

Some police officers were mistakenly killed by police fire, who mistook them for armed robbers while others were also stabbed to death in line of duty.

A total of nine police officers lost their lives when they were either knocked down or run over by vehicles during the period.

Kennedy Agyapong speaking on the killings said the rampant killings of junior police officers in the country, he said it is as a result of corrupt connivance of senior ranks with criminals.

"Seriously I don’t trust the police service especially the senior officers. They are bogus. I have evidence to show that most of the criminals in this country are working hand in hand with senior police officers.

"When junior officers arrest criminals, they are released by the senior officers after they have been given huge sums of money by these criminals. They know what they get from these criminals and that is why junior police officers are dying," he said on Adom TV.
