The Ghana Police Service has arrested four men posing as national security personnel at the Ayawaso North Constituency voting center.
One of them was seen with a side arm.
Regional Police Commander, DCOP Iddi Lansah Seidu said the Police have the capacity to provide security for the constituency elections and asked other sister security agencies to stay off the voting process.
Speaking to JoyNews, DCOP Iddi Lansah Seidu said the Police “have made it clear to the party officers that the Ghana Police Service is capable of conducting absolute security for this election, adding that “we do not want to entertain any other form of security at the polling station.”
“If you are a security organization and you find yourself here, you are an unwanted person,” he cautioned.
He also advised delegates to avoid wearing their security uniforms to the polling stations.
This, he explained, is because the Police have been mandated to take care of the election.
On Thursday, the Police arrested two persons who showed up at the NPP Constituency Executive Elections wearing clothing that created the impression that they are Police personnel.
According to the Police, the two suspects, identified as, John Essel Baah and Enock Kwame Bosompem, were spotted on Thursday, April 28, at the Okaikoi South Constituency where the voting took place.
The Police said the two individuals will be taken through due process.
