The Ghana Police Service has arrested 25 persons in connection with an attack on police officers and the destruction of some properties at Kwahu Bepong in the Eastern Region.

The law enforcement agency had to deploy reinforcement teams to augment personnel at the local station to restore calm.

Clashes between some angry residents and the police resulted in bloody exchanges and destruction of property.

The police have managed to bring the volatile situation under control.

The Ghana Police Service further states that “efforts are ongoing to get the other suspects arrested to face justice”.

This will not be the first attack on police.

In June 2023, 21 suspects were arrested over an attack on the Daboya Police Station in the North Gonja Dis­trict of the Savannah Region.

The suspects were charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit a crime, to wit rioting with a weapon, rioting with a weapon, conspiracy to commit a crime to wit causing unlawful damage and causing unlawful damage.

The police arrested about 118 persons in total, and 87 of them were released after screening.

The attack on the police station was triggered by the recent conflict at Lukula in the district, which was believed to have stemmed from a land dispute between Gonjas and the Mamprusis at Lukula.

The same month, the High Court in Accra gave various sentences to six members of the secessionist campaign group in Ghana, the Western Togoland Restoration Front (WTRF).

In March 2023, the Accra High Court sentenced five other group members to five years imprisonment each in hard labour.

In 2020. they attacked police officers, destroyed a police car and a police station as well as blocked roads leading to the Volta Region in an attempt to prevent people from other parts of Ghana from accessing the Volta Region.

Their reason was that they wanted to secede from Ghana.

Again, in June 2023, some angry youth in the Asokore Mampong Municipality in the Ashanti Region attacked the Asawase police station following the death of their colleague.

According to the information gathered, the youth alleged that a young man was picked up by police officers during a swoop at a hideout and was manhandled, which led to his death.

The youth, in response, stormed the Asawase police and reportedly pelted stones and vandalized other properties in the building.
