The Inspector General of Police, George Akuffo Dampare has been given 14-days to arrest broadcast journalist, Godsbrain Captain Smart.
The IGP, according to Ernest Owusu Bempah of the pro-government group, FixingTheCountry Movement, should order officers of the Ghana Police Service to arrest Captain Smart else a ‘citizens arrest’ will be activated.
According to Owusu Bempah a bench warrant has been issued by a court for the arrest of Captain Smart for possessing a vehicle owned by the Chief Executive Officer of Angel Group of Companies.
Speaking on Wontumi FM he claimed the IGP has been reluctant to effect the arrest and therefore after the two-weeks given time he’ll personally lead a citizen vigilante group to do that.
“I have given IGP two weeks to arrest Captain Smart because there is a bench warrant for him. He stole Kwaku Oteng’s car and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest but it has not been done. “We (#FixingTheCountry Movement) are giving him (Dampare) two weeks to arrest Captain Smart else we will do it ourselves. If we do it, no one should blame the president. If Reverend Owusu Bempah could be detained by the IGP and no one would complain then Captain Smart is not above the law.
“When the time comes and we take action, no one should accuse us of misbehaving because we have citizen vigilantes. We are citizen police and we will not allow Captain Smart to disrespect the court. We will arrest him and hand him over to the IGP. It is not a big task, we can easily do it,” he said.
