An ex-convict, Michael Dadzie, has charged the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to, as a matter of urgency, reach out to past Ashanti Regional Police Commander, COP Nathan Kofi Boakye and COP Tetteh Yohuno to help fight robberies and other crimes.
According to Michael Dadzie, criminal activities under the tenure of these two commissioners reduced drastically.

He believes when the Police hierarchy makes good use of their expertise, armed robbery which has been on the ascendancy in the past few days, will reduce.

“Why do the police hierarchy still keep some police officers who don’t fit [sic] to be there when they’re inexperienced? In fact, COP Kofi Boakye, COP Tetteh Yohunu, these are dreaded Policemen that armed robbers fear a lot”, he noted.
He continued that “These people must be brought on board because they’ll pursue armed robbers and arrest them because they have people on the ground working with them and trust me, they are really equipped and have a lot of information”.
The ex-convict’s appeal follows a series of robbery attacks in Accra and other parts of the country.

On Wednesday, 28 February 2018, for instance, a Lebanese businessman was shot and killed by robbers after he had withdrawn GHS200,000 from the bank and subsequently bolted with the money.
A day before that, some armed robbers stormed Royal Motors in Accra in broad day light and made away with almost GHC 500,000.
These attacks follow raids on several Forex Bureau on the Spintex road since January this year.
Reacting to the developments, Michael Dadzie who spent 9 years on remand at the Nsawam Prison, indicated that COP Kofi Boakye would have crashed those robbers if he were to still be in charge.

“Armed robbers fear Kofi Boakye, especially our Nigerian brothers who are into armed robbery here, I can tell you for a fact that whenever they hear his name they become frightened. See, it’s about the person ooo, not the position you’re heading. When the Nigerians hear that Kofi Boakye has returned to the streets, they’ll send back information to their country cautioning their fellow robbers not to come down to Ghana because he’s back in charge. They really fear that man.”
Meanwhile, the IGP on Thursday announced 11 major changes in the police hierarchy except that COP Kofi Boakye was conspicuously missing on the list.
