The Ghana Police Service has cautioned Member of Parliament for the Assin Central constituency, Kennedy Agyapong after the MP was involved in a heated exchange with the Central Regional Police Commander, DCOP Paul Manly Awin.
The warning was contained in a statement issued by the service on the back of a viral video that showed the legislator gesturing angrily and aggressively towards a police officer at the University of Education, Winneba on Thursday.
The Police, expressing their distaste for the behaviour of Kennedy Agyapong, they advised the Assin Central MP to be mindful of his actions towards Police officers whilst performing their duties.
The Police Administration therefore, takes very strong exception to the behavior of Mr. Kennedy Agyapong, who is a Member of Parliament and advises him to be mindful of his actions towards Police Officers whilst performing their lawful duties.
A video from a student demonstration on the North campus of the University of Education Winneba, shows the maverick politician exchanging words with the Central Regional Police Commander.
Although the words of Kennedy Agyapong were not very clear in the about 20 seconds video, the police, in its release said that an eye witness had informed them that Mr. Agyapong was threatening to ensure that a serving Police officer was dismissed.
The police also affirmed the stance of the Central Regional Police Commander that, nobody wields the authority to cause the dismissal of a Police Officer without lawful justification and due process.
This is not the first time the politician is seen having a public confrontation with public officials.
In January this year, he threatened to make life uncomfortable for colleague MP, Muntaka Mubarak, on the floor of parliament.
Kennedy Agyapong’s brawl with Muntaka came about after the latter requested that the former be referred to the privileges committee of parliament over the murder of Journalist with Tiger Eye PI, Ahmed Suale.
