This few bad cops are the reason why most people have lost faith in our police. You being a cop, your job is to maintain law and order in our country and you’re rather doing the things that was your job to prevent. He should be ashamed of himself and needs to be punished to deter others in the service from engaging themselves in such act.

It’s not their people that arrested him oo. Maybe the owner of the motor and other area members

First of all let’s recommend Ghana police for the good work done. A whole police man stealing motor bike as well as possessing Indian hemp which is illegal too. He is a disgrace to the Ghana police and needs to be punished severely for such an act.

It is our hope. But this few cops who does this kind of things are the reason why most Ghanaians don’t have faith in Ghana Police Service anymore. I know this Police woman at Kwabenya, you dare not commit any crime that you need to be punished for and because of that you try to bribe her to pardon you. You’ll regret making that attempt to bribe her and such police officer needs to be awarded.

Aah how :grin::joy::joy::joy:

A police officer steals motor bike from police station. What a parody of comedy . This guy needs serious beatings to clear his eye . Law enforcers are now into crimes so who protects lives and properties for us. ?

It’s is the police service that arrested him and I applaud them for the good work done :clap:t4::clap:t4::clap:t4:

He truly needs serious beatings to restore his mind to default settings. It’s now getting serious, the law enforcers who are supposed to maintain law and order are now into crime so we the citizens lives are now at stake. Who is going to protect as now? Serious measures needs to be put in place

It seams the police personnel in Ghana are not content with their renumeration , how much is their salary, is the government not paying them well anaa it’s just their professional inherent greed

It’s just greed on the side of some policemen. Everything found in this policeman’s room shows clearly that he is in the police service for his own personal interest and not that of the Police service as a whole.

There is a saying that “practice makes perfect”. He have been doing it before he was recruited so he can’t help it. . Buh at least steal correct machine erhh . This one is just the same as the guy that stole the yam phone

Yeah with everything he possesses shows clearly the guy was a criminal before he joined the Police service. Stealing motor bike is just funny and he can be compared with the one who stole the yam phone :joy:

Am telling you my brother. Stealing is his favorite :joy::joy::joy:

Stealing ankasa when you do it and you’re not caught you’ll be happy but when you’re not fortunate enough and you get caught, that’s where you’ll see :joy::joy:

The police has done well with this. These things occur everywhere in the world and the people involved are not easy to arrest. But, the arrested person ought to be severely punished so that others in the service will learn from this

Yeah it do happens everywhere in the world but the few that will be caught must be severely punished to deter others from engaging in such acts. A whole policeman stealing guns, motorcycle and in possession of illegal drugs(Indian hemp), meanwhile he knows perfectly that it is his duty to fight such crimes but you’re rather doing such things. He’s a disgrace to his family, the police service and Ghana as a whole and needs to be punished.
