Residents of Kumasi are calling for the immediate return of COP Nathan Kofi Boakye, the immediate past Regional Commander of Ashanti Region.
They have in effect sent an SOS message to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, begging him to listen to their plea and direct the IGP to once again assign COP Boakye to the region.
They are very confident that it is only in Mr. Boakye that the activities of the Delta Force, a vigilante group aligned to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), will come to a halt.
” How can these Delta Force guys fool around when Kofi Boakye is in town?” Kofi Arhin, a resident of Ahinsan told Kasapafonline.com in an interview, Friday.
“If Kofi Boakye is around, I don’t think the Delta Force guys would have got the nerves to storm the offices of the Regional Coordinating Council to harass the Regional Security Coordinator,” an Amakom based resident further told this website.
In the view of the many residents interviewed, the Police capo exhibited professionalism and performed diligently to the admiration of all during his days as the Regional Police Commander.
“When he was here crime rate reduced drastically. He monitored closely the activities of the criminals and was able to arrest them whenever they strike. There was absolute peace here. The Preside should bring him back,” a resident at Bantama who gave her name as Maame B recounted.
To many of the residents, if there should be a decision to return COP Kofi Boakye to the Ashanti Region, it should be swift to save the region from the nefarious activities of the Delta Force vigilante group.
