As part of the community engagement strategy of the Ghana Police Service, the Inspector-General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare and his team, on the third day of his visit to the Ashanti Region, engaged community members of Kwaafokrom, a cocoa farming community, about 5 kilometres from Mabang.

At the time of his visit, all the community members were engaged in a customary communal activity, helping one of their own, a retired Commissioner of Police and former Director of the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) formerly the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), Mr Ellis Owusu Fordwouh, on his 65-acre cocoa plantation.

The farmers were in the process of cutting open the harvested cocoa pods, removing the seeds and heaping them on layers of banana leaves for fermentation.

The Inspector-General of Police and his team joined in this process where the Kwaafokrom community members listened to their security concerns and shared some security tips with them.

The team took the opportunity to share some good memories with the 83-year-old retired police officer who is also a lawyer.
