Crime Officer Wanted


    The Yendi Divisional Crime Officer, David Ashong, is being sought by Members of the Abudu Royal family to give reasons surrounding his intentions to assist a young man whose name has only been given as Napaari to bury charms close to the Bolinlana’s palace.

    Mr. Ashong, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, together with his accomplice, is currently at large, according to the Yendi Divisional Commander. He reportedly perpetrated the act at about 9:30 pm Tuesday.

    Members of the Abudu Gate told this paper that the crime officer in the company of Napaari, a student at the Gbewaa Presbyterian Teacher Training College in Bimbilla, were seen at a public toilet close to the Bolinlana’s palace trying to bury the charms.

    A close source told Daily Guide that while digging a particular spot to bury the charms for unknown reasons, the two men were seen by a woman who was also using the facility. The woman (name withheld) managed to sneak out of the toilet and reported what she had seen to the Abudu youth in the area who marched to the scene. Sensing that their cover had been blown, ASP Ashong and his counterpart tried fleeing on an unregistered motorbike but were blocked by the youth who demanded explanations why they had done that.

    Napaari, realizing that tempers had risen, claimed the act was orchestrated by the crime officer who was at this point gasping for breath as the incensed youth were determined to pounce on him.

    The youth immediately dispatched their colleagues to the scene where the charms had been buried and retrieved candles of various colours and some sticks of incense. A complaint was lodged at the Yendi divisional police command but at the time of going to the press, no arrest had been made.

    Meanwhile, the Abudu youth are fuming over plans to shield the crime officer, whose acts they described as barbaric and a slap in the face of the law.

    Daily Guide however gathered that assembly members of the area besieged the police station demanding that an action be taken against the crime officer and his accomplice.
