This is the kind of Police Officers we have, working to protect lives and properties in Tamale.
1. Describes the palace of N-Yab Lamashe Naa as dirty (wonder how his village chief’s palace looks like, must be made of gold and diamonds)
2. Describes the people as “moa” ie, Twi for “animals”.
Does a police officer who thinks the people who pay him to protect them are animals deserve to still be at post?
At a time tensions are so high, with so much anger, would a smart and professional police officer be this reckless?
