Former Deputy Information Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, has called on the leadership of the Ghana Police Service to punish a junior Police officer who was captured in a viral video, disrespecting a senior police officer.

The ex-deputy minister suggested that the Police hierarchy should not take the issue lightly since it tarnishes the image of the service.

In a tweet shared on July 26, 2022, Kwakye Ofosu added that the junior officer does not merit the police uniform and must be disciplined.

“This is an intolerable show of indiscipline by this junior officer towards his superior officer. The Police administration must look into this matter and mete out the strictest disciplinary action against this errant officer who does not merit his uniform,” parts of the tweet read.

In the said video, the junior officer, who identified himself as a member of the Formed Police Unit (FPU), can be seen vehemently challenging the orders of the senior officer who is at least of the rank of Chief Superintendent of Police.

The junior officer even rejected the senior officer’s command to mention his Police service number and told the police to meet him at the FBU because he was not the one who deployed him on the mission.

“… meet me at FBU. You were not the one who brought me here,” he said when the commander requested his Police service number.

“You’re disgracing yourself. You come to meet us trying to arrest a thief and you are giving us all these commands,” the FPU officer further stated in Twi.

The senior officer remained calm and reprimanded the Sergeant in charge for the behaviour of the junior officer. He then gave the Sergeant instructions on how to conduct the operation.

He, however, promised to deal with the junior officer, saying, “if you know what will happen to you, you will keep quiet.”
