The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ghana Police Service, Supt. Cephas Arthur said the affected officers were implicated in acts of corruption and robbery.

Cephas Arthur said "There are many reasons...they were fired by the Police Administration for acts of indiscipline under police disciplinary code of conduct, extortion, bad treatment to members of the public and etc."

In an interview on Accra-based Kasapa FM, he condemned people who had engaged the police in all kinds of violent exchanges, warning that the police administration would deal ruthlessly with the culprits who want to derail the smooth house cleaning exercise by the police service.

He added that the 105 police officers were expelled from the Police Service, including various ranks.

Cephas Arthur said those at the lower ranks were the worst culprits affected by the disciplinary actions.

Supt. Cephas Arthur said the development underlines the enforcement of the police zero tolerance for corruption and related malpractices, as well as indiscipline in the force as it continues to professionalize the Police force.

He called on the public to cooperate with the police by providing useful information that would help reduce crime and other acts of indiscipline in the country.
