THE LAW IS NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS

Mr Ex. DSP, I agree with you in respect to the powers of arrest of the police. However, I would have to disagree with the police invitation to the Mayor. This is because the Mayor is the head of the local government under which the police answers.
Secondly, the action of demolition was undertaken by the KMA (the local government), and not the MAyor.
Thirdly, the action was undertaken by a combination or police/military team under instructions from the KMA.
Thus, the police have no locus to invite the person of Kojo Bonsu in his personal capacity. But rather they can go to the KMA offices and request all legal documents and information pertaining to the said demolition. Or better still they can report any un-coorperative attitude to the Minister of Local Government, under which all local governments serve, including the KMA.
If the Police is so peeved, I would ask him then to go and arrest all the soldiers/police who carried out the actual demolition.
Our police should know the law and how to go about official business. The Mayor does not have to answer to them for ANY official actions undertaken by the local government authority(in this case KMA).

Have a nice day!
