Security analyst Dr Kwesi Aning has expressed fear Ghana may be losing the fight against crime.
According to him, recent happenings in the country suggest that there a loophole in the security architecture of the country and the Inspector General of Police must act quickly.
His comments come on the back of the break-in of the office of the Takoradi Police commander at the Central Police station by thieves.
The thieves, according to reports, took away some electronics from the office of the commander. No arrest has yet been made.
Speaking on the Morning Starr Tuesday, the Dr Aning said things appear to be getting out of control with policing in the country.
“It looks like we’re losing the fight against crime or against organized crime. An attack on a Commander’s office is unheard of and this tells us there are some loopholes. The IGP must act immediately to put an end to some of these things.
“As a nation, we all have a role to play to help the police put a stop to some of these crimes. It looks to me as though nothing was done at all at that station when the alleged kidnapper managed to escape from police custody,” he told Francis Abban.
The development comes on the back of the shooting and killing of two police officers at Kasoa last week.
