The chiefs of Yeji and Busunya have pledged to assist the police to bring to book the youth who vandalised two police stations in the two towns.

The chiefs said they did not support such criminal actions and condemned, in no uncertain terms, the attacks by the youth on the police stations.

The Omanhene of Yeji Traditional Area, Pimampim Yaw Kagbrese V, and the chief of Busunya, Nana Okorofo Narko Gyabaa II, gave the pledge when the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, visited the two communities to assess the situation after some members of the two communities attacked the Yeji and Busunya Police stations on November 26, 2019.


A press release issued by the Public Affairs Department of the Ghana Police Service, said during the visit, the IGP held meetings with the chiefs and people of Yeji traditional area in the Pru District as well as the people of Busunya in the Nkoranza North District, both in the Bono East Region.

It said the IGP, at both meetings, expressed his displeasure about the attacks and the damage caused to the Busunya Police station and the two Police vehicles at Yeji.

The IGP, it said, warned that the Police Administration would not tolerate any attack on police officers or police property and urged the chiefs of both areas to advise the youth to desist from such unlawful acts, stressing that “an attack on any police officer or police facility will have dire consequences on the security of the area”.


The statement said Pimampim Kagbrese, on behalf of the people of Yeji, commended the IGP for personally visiting the area and indicated that the chiefs had good relations with the Police.

It said Pimampim Kagbrese, however, used the opportunity to appeal to the IGP to help curb the incidence of robberies in the area.

Police meeting

The statement said Mr Oppong-Boanuh also held separate meetings with police officers in Yeji and Busunya, where he commended the officers for their level of professionalism.

He urged the personnel to be disciplined in the discharge of their duties.

It said the IGP and his entourage also visited the Yeji Catholic Hospital, which was also attacked by the youth and assured the hospital administration of police protection.
