The Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO), has in a statement suggested that the Ghana Police Service informs the public about the status of investigations into all election-related violence recorded during the elections and in the post-election period.
On February 3, 2021, CODEO published a statement saying, “As in the previous cases of election-related violence recorded during the voter registration exercise and in line with public accountability, CODEO calls on the Inspector-General of Police and the Ghana Police Service to inform the public about the status of investigations into all election-related violence recorded during the elections and in the post-election period.”
According to the Ghana Police Service, 5 people were reported to have lost their lives as a result of the election violence, with over 60 recorded incidents.
“Twenty-one of the incidents are true cases of electoral violence, six of which involve gunshots resulting in the death of five,” they revealed.
