70% of ‘nicodemously’ recruited police sacked – Eklu

The Director-General of the Public Affairs unit of the Ghana Police Service, ACP David Eklu, has said that about 70 per cent of some persons secretly recruited into the service have been flushed out.

“I know some years back, a group of police officers was nicodemously brought into the Ghana Police Service and I can tell you that about 70 per cent of them are out,” he told Benjamin Akakpo on Class91.3FM’s Total Recall programme on Wednesday, 31 October.

ACP Eklu said the officers have either been dismissed or jailed. Some of them, too, he said, have run away.

In his view, it is important to establish systems that will ensure that the right processes are followed through, in the recruitment of personnel for the service.

“That is why I am calling for strong institutions. The UN has rules and regulations and you cannot circumvent [them], if you circumvent it, you will be caught and we need to deliver such strong institutions,” he stressed.

He also pointed out that passion to help people is a trait that every police officer should have.

Therefore, “if you don’t have passion, don’t join the Ghana Police Service”.
