Award-winning journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has said that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Ghana Police Service should be commended for arresting Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah.
According to him, the statement from the Police Service confirming the arrest of Rev. Owusu Bempah and three others is a sign of progress. It is a clear indication that we’ve got to “a point where lawless people cannot threaten the lives of others or act with impunity because of their closeness to political power.”
He also applauded the IGP for ordering the arrest of a taxi driver who had confessed on Onua TV to taking part in a murder.

I’ve read a statement from the Ghana Police Service that one of the untouchable men in our republic, Isaac Owusu Bempah, is in police custody with three of his accomplices. Other accomplices, the police statement said, are on the run. The statement said they’d be put before court today.
It will be a great sign of progress when we get to a point where lawless people cannot threaten the lives of others or act with impunity because of their closeness to political power.
The IGP and the Ghana Police Service must be commended for acting on the viral video involving Owusu Bempah and his associates. I’d read an earlier statement that said a taxi driver who had confessed on television to taking part in murders has been picked up following the interview.
That is proactive policing. And it’s good.
