“You should be mad to use a machete on anyone” – George Ayisi to Police

A member of the NPP’s communication team, George Ayisi has questioned the kind of training given to police officers in the country.

According to him, most police officers, especially junior officers, lack training on emotional intelligence.

“A police officer must not be emotionally weak. A lot of police people, especially the junior officers who go to arrest civilians seem not to have any training on emotional psychology or intelligence. The moment you try to challenge a little, he tries to show you where power lies” Mr. Ayisi said in an interview monitored by The Ghana Report  on Friday.

This is comes after some 9 police officers in the Ashanti region beat and butchered a 36-year-old driver at Adomfe who died shortly after the incident.

Reacting to the development, Mr. Ayisi said the police service must take its officers through training in psychology and emotional intelligence.

“I think it’s about time the police training school takes this seriously – human psychology and emotional intelligence. It’s very important. The police has criminal psychology but emotional intelligence training, they don’t. Why will a policeman take a machete? For what? Raise a machete and use it on a human being? You should be mad! Why will you send a mad person to go and arrest somebody? This unprofessional,” he disclosed.
