“I won’t cover up political violence”-IGP warns

Mr James Oppong Boanuh, the Inspector General of Police(IGP), has cautioned the youth against engaging in political violence ahead of Election 2020 as the Police would neither defend nor shield anyone who breaks the law.      "I will not condone usage of violence in politics, anyone who commits a crime will be prosecuted.
