The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan will be hauled before the Defense and Interior Committee of Parliament to answer questions on two different cell break incidents in recent times.

The cell breaks happened in Denu in the Volta Region and a recent one at Tepa where 2 suspects escaped in the Ashanti region.

In Denu, 7 people escaped, carrying with them, two AK47 riffles belonging to the officers at the station but 3 have been re-arrested.

Deputy ranking Member on the Defense and Interior Committee of Parliament, Major Derick Oduro said Parliament will probe the IGP on the recent happenings with the aim of putting a stop to such incidents.

“The situation where those under confinement are escaping is a great source of worry…everybody is raising eyebrows,” he lamented.

He added that “This is the more reason why Parliament’s Interior Committee will want to hear from the IGP what happened. I know very well that investigations will be instituted by the Police service but before that and after that we want to hear from the IGP.”
