The Member of Parliament for Tema East and Deputy Transport Minister, Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover has called for police personnel in charge of the Kwabenya police station to be interrogated effectively.
A Police officer was shot dead when an arm-wielding gang stormed the Atomic Hill Police station in Kwabenya, Accra, to free suspected armed robbers who were in custody at the station last Sunday.
In the process, six remand prisoners, identified as Dickson Ofori, Chubuzor Chubuzor, Edem Rockson, Emmanuel Kotey, Prince Osei, Kofi Darko and Atta Kwadwo were freed.

According to him, it is administratively and professionally wrong to keep all seven criminals in one cell hence he couldn’t fathom why the Kwabenya Police station did so.

  1. you believe also that you trained invincible forces, delta forces, vigilante groups in the country. Just let me know what you think of them now that you are in power and they have no war to fight?

  2. It seems that they have forgotten so soon those they trained. And why would we place armed robbers in a police cell and all in one location? So sad to lose lives before our senior police officers act. The service needs serious purging.
