Deputy Ashanti Regional Commander, DCOP Kwasi Akomeah Apraku has been removed from his position following the chaos that occurred in the Islamic SHS.
The Ghana Police has released a statement condemning the actions of the police saying that its personnel did not handle the Islamic SHS demonstration properly, causing the removal of the Ashante Regional Commander.
The statement read…
“The students pelted the police with stones and the police used pepper spray and fired warning shots in an attempt to disperse them,” the police said in a statement.
“It was further established that even 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”, the statement said.
“As a result, the Deputy Regional Police Commander, DCOP/Mr. Kwasi 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, has also been interdicted to make way for a thorough investigation into the incident,” the statement from the police added.
