Police officer caught on tape allegedly taking bribe
A police officer whose name was only given as
Sergeant Botwe has been caught on tape allegedly
taking bribe from a driver he accused of violating
road traffic regulations.

Narrating the incident to host Chief Jerry Forson
on Ghana Yensom on Accra100.5FM on Thursday May
18, Yussuf Bouda, who was also in the private car
in which the alleged extortion took place, said:
“A police officer extorted GHS1500 from us
yesterday just because he said we were making a
call while driving.

“He entered our car, asked us to drive to an
isolated place at Asylum Down, threatened he had a
pistol on him, therefore we shouldn’t act funny
and made away with GHS1500. This is how bad these
men in uniform who are supposed to protect us have
become.”

Reacting to this report also on the Ghana Yensom
show, Superintendent Cephas Arthur, Director of
Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service,
confirmed that the said video had reached his
office.

Upon a cursory analysis of it, he said: “I saw
somebody dressed in a uniform just as that of the
Ghana Police Service exchanging money with a
driver but I did not hear the conversation that
took place among them. It may probably be a
business transaction between the two of them, but
that notwithstanding, if indeed it was a policeman
who did that, investigations will be conducted
into the matter.”
