THE CENTRAL Mosque in the Ashanti regional capital of Kumasi was temporarily turned into a police headquarters on Friday when scores of police officers in the region stormed the facility during a worship session to make a donation.
They presented assortment of food items, including bags of rice, sugar, soft drinks, among other products.
DCOP Kofi Boakye said the timely donation was the police’s widow’s mite in helping Muslims in the city to observe the Ramadan fasting.
According to him, officers in the region contributed their moneys to buy the food items to support Muslims to go through the 30-day fasting period.
He said items presented should be distributed freely to Muslim widows and orphans so that they could also observe the 30 days fasting just as any Muslim.
The largesse, DCOP Kofi Boakye explained, was the police’s way of showing gratitude to all Muslims in the region for supporting the police to succeed in combating crime.
He called for the existing ties that exist between the police and Muslims to be deepened in the coming years.
Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Alhaji Abdul Mumin Haruna, who received the items, thanked the police for their timely support.
The chief imam assured that Muslims in the region would continue to support the police so that they would flush criminals from the area.
He urged DCOP Kofi Boakye not to rest on his oars, prophesying that the sky would be his limit in the police profession if he sustained his hard work.
