The interior ministry has stated it is vehemently abhors the recent attacks on police installations in the Upper East and Brong Ahafo regions.

"We are not amused at all about recent development whereby people resort to mob actions and attack police stations to mete out instant justice to suspects. We are very much aware about actions at Kwapong and Bawku. We cannot take the law into our own hands." Deputy interior minister James Agalga told Pulse.com.gh.

In less than two weeks two police stations have been attacked by angry mob who demanded the release of some people in police custody.

The Brong Ahafo Regional Police Command has withdrawn its personnel from Kwapong the community where the first attack took place. A fetish priest, suspected to have killed a resident was lynched while in Police custody destroying police properties in the process.

The second attack took place over the weekend when another mob in Bawku attacked the police station demanding the release of two Muslim clerics.

The deputy interior minister reiterated the need to allow security agencies to independently do their work. "When we take the law into our own hands, we may end up losing innocent souls." He said.

Mr. James Agalga indicated the police at all times must defend themselves when they are attacked.

 “On the part of the police, they have every right to protect themselves and every security installation in the country. So when police come under attack, they are entitled to use some degree of force to repel whatever form of attack they are subjected to.
