Recruitment Scam Investigation Still On – Cephas Arthur


The Police administration says it has not abandoned investigations into the recruitment scam that hit the service in February this year.

Over 100 men and women turned up at various Police training schools in February for enlistment into the Ghana Police Service but it was later discovered that they had been duped by fraudsters.

Some officials of the Police Service were implicated in the scam including the Service’s Director-General in-charge of Human Resource, COP Patrick Timbilla.

COP Timbilla and the other indicted officers were subsequently interdicted

About five civilians were also arrested in connection with the scam.

Months after their interdiction, questions are being raised by many over the silence of the Police on the case.

Speaking to Citi News, Director of Police Public Relations, Superintendent Cephas Arthur said the Police administration is bent on pursing the matter to its logical conclusion.

He stated that all the directives given to the administration by the Police Council have been duly followed after the special task force set up to investigate the matter came out with their findings.

The Police Council directed that the Police officers among them alleged suspects should remain on interdiction and must be taken through service enquiry which is an internal disciplinary action.

The Council also directed that their dockets should be quickly forwarded to the Attorney General’s office for advice.

“All those things are on course. We are doing the service enquiry, the Police officers are still on interdiction and the Police administration has forwarded the docket to the Attorney General for advice,” Supt. Cephas Arthur said.

According to him, no word has been heard from the Police administration on the matter because “we want to wait a while until we reach any milestone before coming out again.”
