Former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and a now Social Commentator, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has bemoaned the infiltration of political party loyalists in our security apparatus.

He was reacting to various criticisms hurled at the Ghana Police Service following the kidnapping of the three Takoradi girls and the alleged increase in insecurity in the country.

In addition to this, Allotey Jacobs feels the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has tarnished the image of the Ghana Police Services.

He believes some of their comments and actions, does not speak well of the Service.

The police should not be surprised at the criticisms coming their way. These criticisms should even encourage them to rebrand or improve. The police need to protect their integrity. There are too many party loyalists in our security services; that is what the service has become and the CID has worsened the image of Ghana Police.

The Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Dankwa made a swift u-turn after she indicated that her outfit knows the whereabouts of the missing girls.

Calls for her resignation has in recent times increased especially as there has been a discovery of some skeletons suspected to be the missing girls.

Some are of the view that if indeed it is confirmed that the skeletons are that of the missing girls, Madam Tiwaa and others who suggested that the girls are alive should vacate their post willingly.
