My Tweet Wasn’t Looking For An IGP Response At All – British High Commissioner
According to British High Commissioner Harriet Thompson, my tweet about Oliver Barker-Vormawor’s recent arrest for a traffic offense was not meant to draw a response from Ghana’s Inspector General of Police.
Dr. George Akuffo Dampare wrote to the British High Commissioner, calling her recent remark on the arrest of the #FixTheCountry Movement convener, “uninformed, biased, misguided, and unwarranted.”
“Oliver Barker Vormawor, the convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement, I’ll be interested to see where this goes…,” the UK envoy tweeted on May 17 after Mr. Barker-Vormawor was arrested.
With her post, the UK envoy was also accused of interfering in Ghana’s domestic affairs, according to the police.
Ms. Thompson, in reaction to the IGP’s statement, stated, “It is evident from the response that it has not been received in the way it was intended.”
Her post, she told an Accra-based station, wasn’t after a response from the IGP at all.”
