READ: LAND’S CORPORAL MOHAMMED AWAL BURIED.
Yesterday, there was government delegation dispatched to Kumasi for the burial service of the late Lands corporal Mohammed Awal who was killed in the line of duty on Wednesday, 28th August, 2019 at Aplaku near Kasoa in the Central Region.
In all, five officers, including a woman, have been shot and killed in the last month in various parts of the country while discharging their lawfully mandated duties.
Government has ordered the police administration to henceforth equip all officers on "outside duties" with weapons and bullet proof vests when on duty in a bid to provide greater protection to the men and women of the Service. This may help to prevent or reduce the deaths of the service men and women.
Just this week, 4,500 bullet proof vests have been delivered to the Police Service to help stem these unfortunate incidents.
“We are retooling the Service and Government has delivered 567 vehicles to the Police service since 2017. We have also given clearance for the recruitment of 4000 officers into the Service to boost the numbers”.
Government will continue to support the Police and more logistics will be delivered. We must protect our police for them to be able to protect us.
I have full confidence in the acting IGP and personel to work hard to bring the perpetrators of this dastardly act to book. We are going to go after the attackers. The police has vowed to arrest and bring all the killers of the servicemen to book, no matter how long it will take or what it will take for it to be accomplished.
May the souls of the departed police personnel rest in the bossom of the Lord. And our heartfelt condolences go to their families, loved ones and friends.
