Nkwanta: Security Personnel Urged To Be Professional
Security services at Nkwanta North in the Volta Region have been urged to be professional in the discharge of their duties and work within the context of the law. The Director of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Angwubotoge Awuni, who made the call, said they should avoid actions that would taint the image of the security services.
He made the call during a visit to the security services at Kpassah in the Nkwanta North District of the Volta Region.
Military and police personnel were deployed to the Nkwanta North District to ensure peace and order when some irate youth of the community protested the possible retention of the current district chief executive for the area.
The irate National Democratic Congress (NDC) youth destroyed about six government vehicles and some property of the National Democratic Congress at Kpassah.
The youth were said to have petitioned President John Mahama on several occasions against the re-nomination of Mr Paul Levin Gyato as the district chief excetive because they were convinced that he would not achieve any positive results for the party.
To bring the situation under control, military and police personnel were deployed to the community to ensure peace and order.
ACP Awuni, who was convinced that the community was now peaceful, urged the soldiers and police personnel to collaborate effectively to ensure that members of the community went about their duties without fear.
The Military Detachment Commander, WOI Deku Astello, thanked the police for their collaboration and gave an assurance that they were in control of the situation.
He added that the military was collaborating effectively with the police to ensure that there was peace and order.
