The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh has jabbed critics calling for him to resign over the recent spate in crime.
According to him, there is crime all over the world, including developed countries like USA, UK and Sweden, so it is ridiculous and hypocritical for people to attack him over the alarming rate of insecurity in the country.
Speaking during a visit to the family of the late Constable General, Emmanuel Osei, who was killed by armed robbers on Monday afternoon, the IGP said the only place where there is no crime is heaven.
“We are doing what we can to protect the people of Ghana. There is no society in the world where there is no crime. Even in the USA, UK and Sweden, where they, more or less have everything, they still have crime. The only place that doesn’t have crime is heaven and we are not in heaven,” he said.
