“Don’t witch-hunt celebrities, go after key politicians who misbehaved in the past” – IGP told

Pressure has been piling on IGP George Akufo Dampare to go after politicians who capitalized on the power they wield in society to misbehave in the past.

According to many Ghanaians, the IGP must not allow himself to be seen as a witch-hunter who has decided to arrest poor celebrities for the sake of it.

In a series of social media posts following the remanding of Shatta Wale, Funny Face and Medikal into police custody, these Ghanaians believe key politicians who had misbehaved and continue to misuse their power should equally be arrested and subjected to the law.

Notable names that have been mentioned include Assin-Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, Tema West MP Carlos Ahenkorah and Awutu Senya East MP Hawa Koomson.

For Kennedy Agyapong, many believe he has said more dangerous things that could potentially cause fear and panic thus needs to be arrested and queried by the police. They believe his continuous throwing of tantrums and spewing of vendettas at people even on television and radio are enough reasons for the IGP to facilitate his arrest.

For Carlos Ahnekorah, many say his misdemeanour in parliament where he snatched ballot boxes and confronted other MPs needs to be revisited. Some Ghanaians believe Carlos Ahenkorah should not be left to go scot-free especially when he was seen putting up behaviour that did not fit his position as a Ghanaian legislator.

For Hawa Kommoson, many believe he needs to be arrested asap for the same offence as Medikal since she was seen not only brandishing a gun but also giving out warning shots at a registration centre in the leadup to the 2020 elections. Hawa Koomson has left a sour taste in the mouth of Ghanaians who believe the IGP needs to ensure she is subjected to the law and punished accordingly.

The likes of Apostle Badu Kobi, Nigel Gaisie, Efia Odo, Black Sherif have all been suggested to the IGP as people who they believe have engaged in one misdemeanour or the other and need to be queried.
