The 2017/2018 Foklex Media Production’s Best Akan Newscaster of the Ashanti Region, Mr Kwame Awuah Nimfour has appealed to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), COP Dr George Dampare to reward DCOP Mr Felix Fosu-Agyeman for arresting the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) for Sekondi Takoradi, Mr Abdul-Mumin Issah over alleged motor traffic offences.
According to the distinguished journalist, it would take a bold and professional police officer of DCOP Fosu-Agyeman’s sort to display the height of professionalism and impartiality to handle offences involving high public officials in Ghana.
He added that, the Western Regional Police Commander had given good account of his job and needed commendation by the police administration headed by the IGP.
The MCE for Sekondi Takoradi was arrested after allegedly breaching motor traffic and verbally assaulted one Inspector Sarfo Andrews who was performing his legitimate duties at a snap checkpoint at Kwesimintsim cemetery on Wednesday February 2, 2022 around 8:30pm.
A police report suggests that, the MCE upon approaching the police snap checkpoint, decided to move past cars waiting to go through the snap check at Kwesimintsim cemetery but was resisted by Inspector Sarfo Andrews.
Irritated by the Police Inspector’s lawful action, the MCE allegedly verbally assaulted him and threatened that he would ensure that he would be posted to Enchi thenceforth.
In an interview with Myvoicenews.com, Mr Kwame Awuah Nimfour, an admirer of DCOP Fosu-Agyeman, he said, when he heard the news of the arrest of the MCE, he was not surprised but vindicated of the trust he had in the Western Regional Police Commander.
” I have known DCOP Felix Fosu-Agyeman as calm, gentle and resolute policeman. He’s highly professional. I would wish many of his sort in the Police Service”, he noted.
He urged other police officers to demonstrate same height of professionalism and avoid discrimination in discharge of their duties.
He further advised top public officials to respect the Laws of the State and be good examples for the general public.
