The 3-member committee set up to investigate the Ejura disturbances has recommended that DSP Philip Kojo Hammond should immediately be transferred.
DSP Philip Kojo Hammond is the Ejura District Police Commander and the report by the Committee believes that his abysmal performance is enough reason for him to be moved from the community.
Captured in the second point of its recommendations, under its 55-page report, the Committee, chaired by a Justice of the Court of Appeal, George Kingsley Koomson, stated that the DSP was incompetent.
“The Committee recommends the immediate transfer of the District Police Commander of Ejura, DSP Philip Kojo Hammond, first for his incompetence in handling the situation and for the fact that his relationship with the community seems to have been damaged beyond repair,” it stated.
The Committee has also suggested that the police station in the town is expanded to serve the community adequately.
“We further recommend the structural expansion of the Ejura Police Station and an increase in personnel,” it said.
