A series of resignations have rocked the Asokwa and Ejisu Divisional Commands of the Ghana Police Service, with three junior police officers resigning from the service.

Messrs John Kwesi Debrah and Christian Yeboah are said to have resigned from the Police Service from the Asokwa Division, a development the Asokwa Divisional Police Commander, ACP Michael Awunmey, declined to comment on, when contacted. 

In the Ejisu Divisional Command in the Ashanti Region, D/Cpl Michael Sarfo, with service number 42202, has also resigned.

Investigations by The Chronicle have established that ‘maltreatment’ of junior staff by their superiors in discharging their duties in the service is compelling them to leave the service at a young age.

Lack of promotion was also cited as a leading factor in the spate of resignations that has rocked the service lately.

Investigations by The Chronicle established that Christian Yeboah has stopped going to work for the past three months.

Speaking to John Kwesi Debrah, he confirmed to The Chronicle that, indeed, he had resigned from the Police Service.

According to him, he resigned willingly and has no qualms with any superior in the service.

The three resignations follow the recent resignation of D/Cpl Cephas Kanyiri Bayora a few months ago.

Meanwhile, impeccable information emanating from the corridors of the Inspector-General of Ghana (IGP), Mr. David Asante-Apeatu, has established that the police chief has invited the former officer of the Ghana Police Service over his resignation.

The Chronicle has gathered that the IGP would like to open an inquiry into the circumstances which led to the resignation of D/Cpl Cephas Kanyiri Bayor

Information available to this paper has is that the IGP, through the Superintendent of the Anti-Robbery Unit (AARU)/CID-Headquarters, C/Supt. Felix Anyidoho, has extended an invitation to Bayor.

A few months ago, D/Cpl Cephas Kanyiri Bayor filed a letter to the IGP, announcing his resignation from the service, after ten years of service.

His resignation comes on the heels of an alleged assassination attempt and armed robbery tag against him.

When The Chronicle called the Director-General of the Ghana Police Service, ACP David Eklu, about Mr. Asante Apeatu’s invitation to his former subordinate and the resignation of some junior officers, he told this reporter he was on leave and that this reporter should submit a formal letter through Whatsapp to enable him forward it to his office for a response.

Five working days after the submission of questionnaire to the police, The Chronicle has had no response.
