N/R: Police urged to deploy the ‘right’ personnel to Lamashegu


The Regent of Langbinsi, Ahn-Zim Wusa Manga, has urged the police administration to ensure that the right officers are deployed to Lamashegu, a suburb of Tamale, in the Northern Region and other places where clashes normally happen, to maintain law and order.

The Regent was speaking on the Sunrise show with Alfred Ocansey on 3FM Tuesday February 15.

“The police should ensure that where these clashes happen the right police personnel should be deployed there to maintain calm,” he said.

He added “All traditional leaders should speak out and find ways to develop their state.”

Meanwhile, six police officers with the Tamale District Patrol team have been interdicted with immediate effect by the Ghana Police Service following the shooting incident on Sunday.

It is unclear what triggered the incident but eye witnesses told 3news.com‘s Christopher Amoako that a young man, 26, was driving an unregistered vehicle and when he was beckoned to stop, he refused.

The police, thus, shot at the vehicle, provoking a clash between the youth in the town and the law enforcement agents to register their disdain for the action.

The clash also saw the police fire warning shots.

Investigations have, however, been launched into the incident.
