Parliament Goes Wild Over Police Recruitment Scam Ghana Police Service

Parliament has instituted investigations into the recruitment scam that hit the Ghana Police Service over the weekend.

The House initiated the move after the Mr. Adagbila Boniface Gambila, MP for Nabdam, Tuesday during deliberations on the Floor of Parliament drew the attention of the House to the gravity of the matter and its implication on the country’s security.

Mr. Ebo Barton-Oduro, the First Deputy Speaker informed the House that the Parliamentary Select Committee on Defence and the Interior had launched investigations into the matter.

He thus charged the Committee to expedite action on the investigation and present its report to the plenary for the appropriate action to be taken.

Hundreds of prospective recruits at the weekend converged at the various police training schools across the country with letters directing them to report for training.

Some of the applicants are alleged to have paid about GH4, 000 each to the fraudsters in order to gain admission to the police service. The applicants were turned away by the police authorities.

The Committee, after adjournment of proceedings in the House, met a delegation of the Ghana Police Service led by the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mr Mohammed Alhassan.

A source confirmed that the IGP assured the Committee to the Service would get to the bottom of the matter and that 14 persons connected to the scam had been identified and arrested
