Editor-in-Chief of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt has commended the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr. George Akuffo Dampare and his officers for clamping down on the perpetrators of the murder of Imoro Sherrif, a soldier.
The 22-year old trooper was stabbed to death at Ashaiman and the assailants bolted away with his iphone.
Following the death of the young soldier, a group of soldier, in what they called a sanctioned operation, raided the Ashaiman community whipping the residents mercilessly.
Some of the residents were pulled out of their homes and beaten to stupor by the soldiers but the soldiers were unable to identify the culprits.
The Police, in their investigations, have proceeded to arrest six suspects; Safianu Musah alias Dayorgu, Ibrahim Abdul Rakib, Samuel Tetteh alias Wiper, Abubakar Sadick alias Birdman, Yussif Mohammed and Abdul Gafaru Abdul Karim.
Two of the suspects are said to be directly involved in the soldier’s murder and the other four are charged for dishonestly possessing the deceased’s phone.
Kwesi Pratt applauded the IGP and the Police administration for using professsional method in dealing with the incident and the arrest of the suspects, unlike the soldiers who chose to terrorize the residents at Ashaiman.
“We have good Police officers in Ghana who when well-equipped and motivated will do a great job. We will commend the IGP and his officers for doing a good job . . . they’ve shown us that there is a professional way for doing things which bring results. We thank them greatly,” he said on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo” morning show.
