The District police commander of Tumu in the Upper West Region, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Benjamin Samani has been accused of corruption.

According to the residents who embarked on a protest march calling for his removal said, the commander and some other two police officers have condoned corruption in the area.

Leader of the demonstrators, Razak Vemmie, said the commander has been transferred from the district but he has refused to leave.

According to him, the Commander took off an air conditioner fitted in his office when he was informed about his transfer.

He accused the commander of auctioning a Land Rover vehicle belonging to the police to himself.   

He said anytime the commander was informed about an armed robbery, he complained that the police did not have means to tackle the situation, although he has three vehicles at his disposal – one of which he uses to assist his wife in her chop bar business.

But in a sharp rebuttal, ASP Samani, however, denied all the allegations leveled against him.

He said Razak is demanding his removal because he ordered Razak's arrest for a crime he committed and went into hiding.
