Ghana Police under Dampare is sick and needs healing — Sam George

Sam George, MP for Ningo-Prampram, decried the turmoil at the Islamic Senior High School in Kumasi, when police opened fire on students protesting for speed ramps and bridges to save them from being murdered by fast automobiles.

“Police resorting to severe force as a first option is cruel and unprofessional,” he remarked.

He said the Ghana Police Service under Dr. George Akuffo Dampare is ill and requires healing.


Following the event, the Police Administration terminated DCOP Kwasi Akomeah Apraku from his job.

Two more senior policemen were interdicted after a police inquiry into the Islamic SHS incident.

“The Police handling of the event was unsatisfactory and fell short of our normal operating procedure on crowd management,” the Police said in a statement.

According to a police statement, officers’ response to the student demonstration lacked professional crowd control.

20 students were hospitalized when police used pepper spray and warning bullets to disperse the protesting pupils.

Students and police officers who were hurt have been released.

IGP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare has promised pupils of Islamic Senior High School in Kumasi that his outfit would safeguard them.

“Each of you has a unique role that no one else can fulfill. We have a duty to secure your safety and full potential so that you may fulfill your God-given destiny for this generation and the unborn.

“Anything that takes you out of this world before achieving your destiny is unholy, and we’ll do all it takes to prevent that,” Dr. Dampare told the pupils.”
