You Can Run But You Cannot Hide – COP Kofi Boakye Warns Jamestown Bullion Van Robbers

Published

on


Head of Legal and Prosecutions at the Ghana Police Service headquarters Nathan Kofi Boakye, a Commissioner of Police (COP), has warned perpetrators of last Monday’s robbery at Adedenkpo near Jamestown that their time will be up “very very very soon”.

“I want to emphasise to the nation that very, very, very soon all those involved in this bullion robbery and especially those who committed it, they will be arrested very soon,” the former Ashanti Regional Police Commander stated.

“They can run and run and run but they cannot hide.”

COP Kofi Boakye gave this assurance on Friday, June 18 when 320 new recruits of the Service passed out in the Ashanti Region at the Regional Police Training School in Kumasi.

He said the Inspector General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh, has put in “innovative” strategies to help combat the menace that currently confronts the nation.

He also called on the new recruits to start nosing around for information that will help in arresting Monday’s criminals.

“It is incumbent on all of us including you – the new recruits – to help us achieve this objective, starting from now and you have a duty of arresting these criminals who killed one of us.

“This is non-negotiable and we cannot compromise on the need to arrest these criminals.”

Monday’s attack on a bullion van left the police officer on escort duty, Lance Corporal Emmanuel Osei, dead and a by-stander, Efia Badu, also hit by a stray bullet.

Kufuor And Akufo-Addo Wanted To Jail Me At All Cost – Tsatsu Tsikata

Published

on


Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, a former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), has revealed that former president John Agyekum Kufuor and then Attorney General in 2002, Akufo-Addo were determined to put him behind bars at all cost.

In an interview on TV3, Mr Tsikata said the trial judge, Justice Henrietta Abban “had been adjourning because she had said if she didn’t do that there will be a mistrial.

“She did indicate that if she did not wait for the Supreme Court and the Court of appeal there will be a mistrial. In spite of all that she still went ahead to pronounce judgement on that day. You can’t really make head and tail of that in purely legal terms. The lesson I am trying to draw is this, we will want to have confidence in the judicial system. We want to have confidence that when you go to court the decisions will be based on law and the facts.

“But we also have to recognize that unfortunately that does not always happen. There are other factors that influence the course of justice including the factors political pressure being brought to bear on judges to come to a certain decision at all cost.

“In my case there was no question about the fact that the political pressure from right up to the president level, the Attorney General at that time now President Akufo-Addo, President Kufuor. They were determined that I would have to go to jail.

“That determination seemed to be based on the wish to demonstrate that certain things had not been done right under President Rawlings in the past.”
