The Head of Research of the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre Dr Emmanuel Kwesi Aning says it is a wrong decision for the Ghana Police Service to pull out of Donkorkrom in the Eastern region following clashes between the law enforcement personnel and the locals.

According to him, "t is a wrong move by the police because it’s not the totality of the citizens and residents of Donkorkrom who did whatever took place."

The Police administration warned it will not assign police officers to Donkorkrom and Tease in the Eastern Region until a Police station that was destroyed by residents of the area is rebuilt.

Some irate residents set the police station there on fire in protest over some police officers who fled after being allegedly involved a bullion van attack which led to the death of the driver.

The attempted robbery led to the death of the driver of the van after a heated exchange of gunfire between the police officer in the van and the suspects.

Director of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), COP Prosper Kwame Agblor said residents must pay for the construction of the offices else police officers will never return to protect the communities

But Kwesi Aning in an interview with Accra-based radio, station Accra FM said, “Even if it is 10 people who are innocent, those ten people deserve protection from the police because by not getting involved in this action, they would be perceived by the generality of the people in the town as being against their action and their lives may be in danger.”
