Calls for the arrest of the driver of a V8 car who used the police dispatch to buy a hamburger
Some social media users are drawing the attention of the Ghana Police Service and Inspector General of Police, COP Dr George Akuffo Dampare to a video that is rapidly making the rounds on Twitter, in particular.
In the 15 second video, the person who took the photo is shown in a V8 vehicle, being chauffeur driven through some of Accra’s main streets (specifically Shangrila Road) and ending at the Burger King branch of the airport.
The video does, however, start from a location that upon review shows a bit of the Jubilee House in the shot.
The car is however driven by a police dispatcher, clearing the road for the V8, even though it is clear that there is some traffic on the roads it takes.
The video ends with the person taking the video showing off their “prize” – a hamburger from Burger King.
Following the viral nature of the video, many users demanded that action be taken and that the “culprit” be brought to justice.
Here are some of the reactions from Twitter:
IGP will not see this and will reform the police. If it’s about asking if 20 prisoners can enter the cell “against the tide” as he gathers media men like Avengers to watch him ask. Organized show
Ad3n aa “can 30 people fit in this room?”
