The demonstrators in their messages added that they would continue to rebel against the two till their concerns were properly addressed.
They have also vowed to ensure that the DCE ‘is sacked from office or we will use any means to uproot him like cassava.’
‘How can a whole Regional Commander sit down for an appointed DCE to tell him who he can work with? We are really ashamed of him and he should try to use his mind in the course of the discharge of his duties,’ Yaw Mensah, one of the angry demonstrators told DAILY GUIDE.
The demonstrators blocked the road leading to the Police Commander’s residence and burnt car tyres to register their displeasure about the transfer.
The DCE, Mr Mends, about a week ago was said to have gone to the Regional Police Commander to tell him that he could no longer work with the police boss in the area.
This, according to information, compelled DCOP Ninson to transfer the District Police Commander to Assin Praso, to be replaced by one ASP Owusu Bempah.

According to the youth, ‘We are not against the transfer of the police boss but we only want the right procedure to be done.’
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Constituency Chairman, Mr Akutsu, had expressed concerns about the way the police officer was not properly sent off.
He added that the DCE since his appointment some three years ago had transferred 11 officers at the Assembly which included the former District Co-ordinating Director, Mr I.K. Acheampong, the former District Engineer, Mr Edward Kwesi Andoh, former Finance Officer as well as the District Education Director.
‘The DCE openly told all these people that he cannot work with them and they were all transferred. We will not sit down for him to get all the hardworking people in the district to be transferred because of his evil agenda,’ they added.
They irate demonstrators continued…’We want to know why the DCE claims he cannot work with him and also as to why the police transfer board can not investigate the issue whether he deserves to be transferred or not.
‘The new police officer is not welcomed since we are not ready to work with him and if he insists, we will make his work very difficult for him.’
DCOP Ninson who was on official assignment at Winneba upon hearing the news delegated the Deputy Regional Police Commander, ACP Agyemang, the Assin Fosu Divisional Police Commander, ACP Anane Dunkwa and the Assin Fosu Crime Officer together with some police officers to go to Abura Dunkwa to forestall peace and order in the area.
