“Our pepper sprays, tear gas, cannons and other accoutrements are ready to be unleashed on election wreckers who will steal ballot boxes,” he said.

“Citizens should channel all their grievances to the appropriate quarters than taking the law into their own hands,” he advised.

DSP Cephas Arthur, who spoke on Kumasi-based Abusua FM, called on journalists to be circumspect in their reportage before, during and after the election.
