Ghana Police Service is a danger to society – Security Analyst

Fraud and Security Analyst, Richard Kumadoe, has chastised the Inspector General of Police Dr. George Akuffo Dampare for addressing what he considers a harsh and insulting letter to the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Harriet Thompson.

Expressing his disappointment, Richard Kumadoe shared, “I would’ve loved it if the letter was not signed by the IGP. But if he signed the letter then it means he read it and the responsibility now lies with him. The letter is a bit too confrontational, the wording is insulting and the argument is a bit aggressive.”

The police released a four-page document signed by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, accusing the British High Commissioner of meddling in the internal affairs of the country and further instructing her to mind her own business following a tweet she made.

The High Commissioner’s tweet read; “Oliver Barker Vormawor, convener of #FixTheCountry movement, arrested again, I understand for a motoring offence on his way to court. I’ll be interested to see where this goes…”

According to him, the IGP could have addressed this matter in a diplomatic manner by engaging the Foreign Affairs Ministry. “If the IGP feels the High Commissioner said something he was displeased with, he could’ve gone through the Foreign Affairs Ministry to resolve this and the police would’ve focused on fighting crime, a mandate for which they are being paid,” he submitted in an interview with Samuel Eshun on Ghana’s ‘Fact Sheet Show’.

Richard Kumadoe argues the pressure from the Vormawor case must be getting to the IGP, hence his actions.
