The Inspector-General of Police, Mr David Asante-Apeatu, accompanied by his Director-General, Operations, COP/Mr George Mensah as well as DCOP Mr Kwasi Mensah Duku, Ashanti Regional Commander; DCOP Mr Adu Anim, Deputy Ashanti Regional Commander; Chief Superintendent Mr Francis Ncho, the Chief Staff Officer; and others, has toured the Ashanti Region on Thursday, 11 April 2019, to interact with police officers in the region.

Mr Asante-Apeatu visited the Mampong Ashanti Police Division, where he was received by the Mampong Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Mr Wisdom Lavoe, who enumerated the challenges facing the Division, including inadequate manpower, logistics and vehicles in his welcome address.

Mr Asante-Apeatu assured the police officers in the Division that the police administration will do whatever it can within its powers to solve the challenges they are facing.

He also commended the officers for their dedication to work in spite of the challenges and the vastness of the Division. He further encouraged the officers to work to contribute to the realisation of the vision of the Ghana Police Service to become a world-class police organisation.

The IGP and his team also inspected some robbery-prone areas and police checkpoints on the main Mampong – Ejura Highway, Ejura – Aframso scarp and others.

He also paid a courtesy calls on the chiefs and people of the Mampong Traditional Area, the Nananom of Ejura Traditional Council and the Nananom of Sekyedumase.

At Mampong, Gyaasehene Nana Boakye Yiadom Atonsa, who spoke on behalf of the Mampong Paramount Chief, Daasebre Osei Bonus II, bemoaned the spate of armed robbery within the Mampong municipality and appealed to the IGP to augment the strength and logistics of his officers to enhance effective crime combat within the municipality.

At Ejura, the chiefs were led by Nana Sarfo Kantanka Okofrobour, and at Sekyedumase Nananom, they were led by Nana Agyapa II, Krontihene of Sekyedumase, all of whom highlighted the lack of police personnel, vehicles and logistics in their areas.

Mr Asante-Apeatu assured the chiefs and the police officers that the police administration will work hard to increase the staff strength, and provide other logistics needed for the effective functioning of police in the area.
