The security agencies have set up a committee to investigate the circumstances surrounding Wednesday’s military attack on police officers in Tamale.
Eight police officers were injured during the attack.
The investigative committee made up of personnel from the Defence and Interior ministries is to find and bring the perpetrators of the attack to book.
This, is to help serve as a deterrent to others and also forestall a future occurrence of a similar incident which is a potential threat to national security.
Making this known at a durbar at the Bawa Barracks in Tamale on Thursday, the Northern Regional Minister, Mr Salifu Saeed who also chairs the Regional Security Council (RESGEC) said “those who would be found culpable will not be spared irrespective of their rank or position.”
The durbar at the military base was attended by personnel from the Defence and Interior ministries, the police and military.
The Regional Minister gave a 24-hour ultimatum to the commanders of the various units to immediately get their troops together to march through the principal streets of Tamale help restore the confidence of the public in the two security agencies.
Also present at the durbar was a high-powered delegation from both the military and police commands at the national level and representatives from the Ministry of the Interior and Defence.
Air Commodore Alfred Augustine Appiah represented the Chief of Defence Staff whilst two Commissioners of Police (COP), Messrs Prosper Agblor and Nathan Kofi Boakye represented the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
