Dampare Sends a clear signal to lawless religious practitioners

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, is sending clear message to the church and all faith-based organizations that, it is not going to be business as usual and that nobody would be allowed to hide behind religion to break the law with impunity. Their activities should be in conformity with what the law says.

The IGP has held a meeting with the religious leaders to convey this message. In attendance were representatives of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, the Christian Council of Ghana, the Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference, the National Association of Christian and Charismatic Churches and the Council of Independent Churches.

The National Chief Imam, Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, was represented at the meeting by Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu.

IGP Dampare was supported by the members of the police management board.

Speaking to journalists, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kwasi Ofori, the acting Director General of the Police Public Affairs, said the purpose was to help the religious bodies to have clear understanding of what they could do and what they could not do.

This way, it would significantly reduce the friction between religion and the law.

The police, ACP Kwasi Ofori, said were not in to witch-hunt anybody – far from that. The faith-based organizations – the churches needed to take a critical look at how they have been conducting their activities vis-à-vis what the law says. That was the pathway to avoiding infractions of the law. He said that was how to make sure that there was sanity in the society. The Most Reverend Paul Kwabena Boafo, Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church, described the meeting as helpful, said it brought to the fore the need for things to be done properly.

The law’s position on excessive noise, for example, is clear but that is not being respected.

He said it was important for the church and everybody to give strong support to the police to ensure that there was discipline – law and order in the society. Church leaders should make sure that they applied reasoning and wisdom to whatever they did to avoid running into head-on collision with the law.

The meeting by the Inspector General of Police with the faith-based organizations although many people think should have come earlier, it is better late than none. Charlatans, parading as pastors, apostles and bishops, have had their way for far too long.

They have been taking advantage of the fear of insecurity of some of their members to swindle and physically abuse them.

How on earth should anybody make another person to eat grass or carry a cement bag, under the guise of exorcising them of evil spirits. The state has a duty to provide everybody with protection.
