The IGP is assuring Ghanaians of a peace election despite recent waves of election-related violence.

“As an institution, I assure you that wherever this violence, we shall do everything possible to curb them as they occur. I assure you that we shall leave a very secure society and environment after the elections,” John Kudalor said. “We are trying to bring everybody on board; the chiefs, the youth, the parties.”

The IGP made comments in an interaction with journalists after a simulation exercise on Friday by the police during a working tour.

He was accompanied by the Minister of Interior Prosper Bani and other top police officials.

Mr Kudalor said the year was a critical year due to the election, adding that policing is a shared responsibility hence all should help the law enforcement agencies to fish out miscreants and lawbreakers.

-5000 hot spot-

The police say it has identified over 5000 hot spots where violence could erupt during the elections.

This was revealed by the Director-General of the Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Prosper Kwami Agblorh at a forum on peaceful election organised by the Kofi Annan International Peace Keeping Training Center.

The number of flashpoints has increased from 3,574 in 2012 to over 5000 in 2016. Agblorh attributed the increase to the illegal possession of arms, chieftaincy disputes among others.
