IGP Must Resign Over Unanswered Questions – Ras Mubarak

The Member of Parliament, MP, for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak has joined numerous calls asking for the resignation of the Inspector General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu.

According to him, looking at the numerous unanswered questions surrounding the violence at Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, he should honourably resign.

“I think the IGP would do the honourable thing and tender his resignation because his continuous stay as IGP has become very untenable, especially in the light of conflicting report between the police and National Security,” he said on the Citi Eyewitness News on Friday.

The NDC has been calling for the head of the IGP after the police indicated that they were not aware of how their vehicles and guns got in the hands of some questionable National Security operatives.

A former Chief of Staff, Nana Ato Dadzie has also called for the resignation of the IGP.

Mr Ato Dadzie said: “The Inspector General of Police, as a matter of personal honour and principle, must resign his office for entertaining the violation and abuse of his command by the intrusion of an unconstitutional paramilitary force. The transportation of the offending persons in official vehicles of the Ghana Police Service, and their display of branded gear of the same, reaffirms this demand. The same must be said of the sad spectacle of helplessness and the non-intervention of senior police officers at the scene”.
