IGP deploys 32,000 police force ahead of SC ruling on election petition

The Ghana Police Service has begun massive deployment of 32,000 personnel to strategic locations and installations across the country ahead of a Supreme Court verdict on an historic election dispute.

Joy News is learning that 500 men and women were dispatched Friday to strategic locations.

Police spokesperson, DSP Cephas Arthur, says the deployment is being done with the court’s judgment on the election petition in mind.

The ruling on the case challenging the validity of the declaration of John Mahama as winner of the 2012 elections has been slated for August 29, 2013.

There are fears of violence in the immediate aftermath of the verdict and the police are leaving nothing to chance.

More soon.
