The Ghana Police Service has debunked claims that the CMB BARRACK has been sold to a private entity.
This follows a report filed by the news team where supposed police wives were seen demonstrating against the felling of trees in their premises by one Mr. Owusu, who allegedly claims the land had been sold to him.
Supt. Sheila Abayie Kesse Buckman, PRO for Ghana Police Service said the women in the video are not police wives but traders from the CMB market.
On Thursday, August 27, 2020, a demonstration was staged at the CMB barracks by some women who claimed to be wives of policemen to resist against the pulling down of trees on their compound.
According to them, the people who were pulling down the trees were reluctant to stop because they were authorized by one Mr. Kwame Owusu, a building contractor, to do the job.
However, in an interview Supt. Sheila Abayie Kesse Buckman, PRO for Ghana Police Service, refuted claims that the land had been sold to a private entity.
She said the rationale behind the felling of trees on the compound was to renovate the place through a Public-Private Partnership.
She added that the women identified in the video claiming to be police wives are not, but rather traders from the CMB market.
The publication is false and should be treated as such, she said.
