Police deploys elite teams to Bimbilla

The police administration says it has dispatched personnel from the elite units of the Ghana Police Service to Bimbilla in the Northern region to help maintain law and order in the area. The re-enforcement team, according to a statement from the police on Friday, is made up of personnel from the action units of the Service, and Crime Scene Management Unit at the CID Headquarters, Accra. The re-enforcement has the mandate of consolidating the calm that has been restored to the area, and also investigating the disturbances that broke out, the statement said. About 10 people including two children were killed in Thursday’s crossfire when confusion broke when a faction in a longstanding chieftaincy dispute installed a chief. The police on Friday arrested 17 persons who are assisting them in their investigations. “Meanwhile the Police Administration is entreating the people of Bimbilla and its environs to keep calm, as the Police conducts investigation into the incident,” the statement by the police said.
