Show of Power: KMA boss snubs Police chief

I am an ex DSP of the Ghana Police Service. I do not identify with this District Police Commander over his frustrations. I think his frustrations are self-inflicted. Under the laws of Ghana, there is equality before the law and the law is clear that for the purpose of conducting their investigations, the police can arrest anyone on reasonable suspicion of having committed a crime or on reasonable suspicion of being complicit in the commission of a crime. The police were simply being courteous when they invited the KMA boss for investigations but since he wants to ride roughshod over the police, they should arrest him for the purpose of their investigations. Once he is under arrest, they can then keep him from being one minute to 48 hours for the purposes of their investigations and he cannot walk out on the police whilst under arrest with the flimsy excuse that he is busy.

The District Commander has all the power under the law to arrest this bloke to let him co-operate with his office for the purposes of this investigation. I think an arrest of this bloke will teach him and other people of his ilk that the law is no respector of persons even if they are exalted in political offices.
