Inspector-General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh, has sent a high-powered delegation to the Adomfe community in the Ashanti Region to console the family of an alleged victim of police brutality, ABC News can report.
Kofi Ampomah, believed to be 33-years old and a driver, died earlier this week after allegedly sustaining machete wounds after police brutality.
The delegation was led by the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) David Ajem Agyemang, who is also the Deputy Ashanti Regional Police Commander.
Speaking to the family, ACP David Ajem Agyemang urged them to exercise restraint and patience as the police administration has already launched an investigation into the matter.
He also assured that appropriate steps would be taken and justice served after investigations are concluded.
ACP David Agyemang further called on the public not to lose confidence in the police due to the incident, but rather continue to support the law enforcers to provide security to the people.
A spokesperson for the family, Kofi Appiah, described their relative as a peace-loving, law-abiding citizen.
He said they are waiting patiently for the police to come out with their findings after the investigations and are hopeful that anything leading to miscarriage of justice, would be avoided for peace to prevail.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Regional Commander in a separate visit by the Ashanti Regional Police Command has commended Nana Adomfe Agyei, Chief of the community, for employing his leadership skills to calm the youth who got incensed over what happened.
Present at the meeting were; Mr Alexander Frimpong, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) and Mr. Kwaku Asante Boateng, the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area.
