Ghana’s Inspector-General of Police responds to British High Commissioner

Your comment on Barker-Vormawor’s arrest was from an uninformed position – IGP replies British High Commissioner

The Inspector-General of the Ghana Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare, has responded to the British High Commissioner, Harriet Thompson, over her comments concerning the arrest of FixTheCountry Movement convener,  Oliver Barker Vormawor.

Madam Harriet Thompson, in a Tweet on Tuesday, May 17, said she looks forward to seeing how the arrest of the convener of the FixTheCountry Movement will turn out.

“Oliver Barker Vormawor, the convener of #FixTheCountry Movement, arrested again, I understand, for a motoring offense on his way to court. I’ll be interested to see where this goes…,” the tweet said.

However, the Police in a letter signed by the IGP, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare to Madam Harriet Thompson said her tweet was from either a “biased or uninformed position.”

Even though it said it would ordinarily not respond to such comments, it is doing so from a previous painful experience.
