WR/: Police warn public against false kidnap reports

The Police in the Western Region have cautioned the public against the spread of false kidnapping stories.


DCOP Mr Redeemer Vincent Dedjoe, who is the Regional Commander, says the command had deployed more personnel to patrol hotspots to check any suspicious developments and assist people with security challenges.

In an interview with Daily Graphic, he advised that the public desists from giving false alarm which causes more fear and panic in the society.

DCOP Dedjoe said the panic actions and false alarms were not the best and that it was to ensure the safety of the public that the command had put in measures to prevent any more persons from going missing.

The Ghana Police Service, he said, took every complaint from the public seriously, therefore, people should channel their suspicions to the police. “Every suspicion and rumour should be reported to the nearest police station,” he advised.

“We have intensified patrols and if anybody suspects or sees some strangers in their community, they should make a report to the police. We have the city well covered and the nearest patrol team will be deployed immediately,” he promised.

Mr Dedjoe also advised that if any suspect is apprehended, he should be handed over to the police with immediate effect.
