Tamale Dakpema Bawa Fuseini has strongly condemned the vandalism of Ghana Police Service and Volta River Authority (VRA) properties by some enraged Tamale youth last Saturday.
The chief stated that the vandalism was uncalled for, especially because stakeholders are working with the VRA and the Ghana Police Service to discipline the officers who brutalized some alleged illegal energy consumers.
“On behalf of the chiefs of Tamale, we condemned the actions by the irate youth. The youth overreacted by destroying VRA and the Police offices” Dakpema Fuseini Bawa said.
The chief appealed to Tamale residents to desist from energy theft because the city’s development is dependent on taxes.
He did, however, encourage the VRA and the Police to go about their business as usual.Dakpema Bawa Fuseini made the remarks during a press conference on Tuesday, September 28th at his Tamale palace.
It will be recalled that some angry youth destroyed VRA and Ghana Police Service properties in Tamale in response to a viral video of a police officers abusing some people in Tamale.
The Inspector General of Police, COP George Dampare has since interdicted the four officers who were engaged in the assault.
