Police planting drugs in vehicles? investigation launched

On the allegation that police planted “wee” and cocaine in people’s cars while on patrol, the police administration has started looking into it and asked for help from the public to find Dr. Patrick Asiedu, who made the claim in an audio clip that is going around social media.

The police administration needs more and better information from Dr. Patrick Asiedu so that it can charge the officers who are said to have broken the rules.


1. The attention of the Police Service has been drawn to an audio tape in which it is alleged some Police officers planted substances suspected to be narcotics in a vehicle of a member of the public and attempted to extort money from him.

2. The Police Administration immediately launched investigations into the matter and our initial checks at the stations mentioned in the audio, East Legon and the Accra Central Police Stations, have revealed that no such complaint had been made there.

3. As part of the investigation, the Police have also contacted the Narcotics Control Commission and the Ghana Armed Forces and both institutions have indicated that no such incident has come to their attention.

4. The investigation is still ongoing, and so far, all efforts to identify the victim of the alleged incident, the said Dr Patrick Asiedu have been unsuccessful. We, therefore, wish to entreat the victim and any other person with relevant information on the incident to contact telephone number 0200416540, to assist the Police investigations. This is a temporary number dedicated solely to this investigation.

5. We would like to assure the public that the Police Service in its quest to become an institution worthy of respect and trust in the country, and a reference point for the rest of the world, will not condone any unprofessional conduct among its officers and the Service is determined to get to the bottom of this matter.

6. We would like to once again, urge the public to continue to support us in our transformational journey.
