The Ghana Police Service has warned Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong to be mindful of his actions toward police officers, saying neither he nor anybody wields the authority to cause the dismissal of a lawful officer.

This follows a widely shared video on social media in which Mr Agyapong is seen being aggressive towards some police officers who were at the scene of a demonstration by students of the University of Education, Winneba, on Thursday.

In a statement, the police said its attention has been drawn to a video report where Mr Agyapong “was seen and heard intimidating a police officer during a students’ demonstration on the North Campus of the University of Education, Winneba, on Thursday, 14 March 2019.

“In the said video, which has also been corroborated by eyewitnesses, the MP for Assin Central was seen in an aggressive mood saying he will make sure a serving police officer was dismissed for no apparent reasons.

“The police administration has also taken note of the fact that the Central Regional Police Commander who was at the spot instantly told Mr. Kennedy Agyapong he had no powers to dismiss any police officer performing his or her lawful duties.

“The police administration therefore wishes to affirm the stance of the Central Regional Police Commander that, nobody wields the authority to cause the dismissal of a Police Officer without lawful justification and due process.

“The police administration therefore, takes very strong exception to the behaviour of Mr Kennedy Agyapong who is a Member of Parliament and advises him to be mindful of his actions towards police officers whilst performing their lawful duties.

“Meanwhile, the police administration wishes to once again assure all police officers that it will stand by them at all times provided their conduct is professional and lawful”.
