The Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Francis Ebenezer Doku has been removed from his post and has been re-assigned as Director in charge of Special Duties at the Police Headquarters, Accra.
The staff officer at the Regional Police Command, Maister Klay, has also been transferred from the region to be in charge of the Gambaga District Police Command.
A police signal dated January 21, and sighted by PrimeNewsGhana.com indicated that the transfers takes immediate effect. Meanwhile, no reasons were assigned for the changes made.
It is however suspected that DCOP Doku’s removal from his current duties comes on the back of his recent pronouncement that the Police had identified weapons manufacturing base at Alavanyo but are unable to move in due to high levels of resistance.
In a related issue, the Paramount Queen of Alavanyo Traditional area in the Volta region, Mama Ametor II, also alleged recently that some police officers in the Volta Region were engaged in marijuana cultivation.
She alleged, the recent clash between the police and some youth of Alavanyo Dzogbedz which resulted in the death of four persons was as a result of a 'wee' business deal which went wrong.
