A Pressure Group called United Press for Development (UPD) has called on President Nana Akufo Addo to sack the Inspector General of Police (IGP) David Asante-Appeatu for his incompetence.

Their call comes after the brutalization of Multimedia Journalist Latif Iddrisu at the Police Headquarters while covering the arrest of NDC Deputy General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho.

The journalist was assaulted by a group of police officers when he asked one of them for the technical name for the crowd control vehicle, to aid his reporting.

The Convener of the group, Kofi Asante Mensah tells Adom News Reporter that the IGP is rather blaming non-functional CCTV instead of investigating the matter properly to bring his officers to book.

He said the president should form a committee to investigate the matter and also sack the IGP because “he is absolutely incompetent.”

Kofi Asante Mensah said they will embark on a demonstration if the government fails to sack the IGP because they cannot allow journalists to be brutalized either by civilians or even the police without doing anything about it.
