Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, Sheilla Kessie Abayie-Buckman, says the use of the word ‘insecurity, to describe the recent surge in crime in the country, deviates from reality.
She was responding to concerns about the recent attacks on the citizenry, leading to the death of at least two police officers. Host Samson Lardy Anyenini had listed recent incidences of crime in the country for her comments.
According to Mrs. Abayie-Buckman, the supposed sense of insecurity results from an abuse of privilege offered through the media, key personalities who take every opportunity to spread fear and panic in the country.
“In the last few days, people have used the word insecurity, this is because of the privilege of having the media space, and that is causing more fear and panic. It is not a reality. The use of the word must be looked at,” Mrs. Abayie-Buckman explained.
Superintendent of Police, Sheila Abayie-Buckman, maintained that Ghana is a safe country and there is no threat of insecurity as is being suggested.
