An unidentified police officer has stormed the home of a whistle-blower who exposed clandestine registration of applicants for the National Identification Authority’s (NIA)’s national identification card called Ghana Card.
In a video made available to Whatsup News, the policeman who has no identification card, positioned himself at the gate of the unnamed whistle-blower and refused him entry into his own house.
Eyewitnesses say the police constable followed the whistle-blower to his house on a motorbike and blocked the bemused man from entering his private resident. All efforts to get the police officer to state his purpose there proved futile as he refused to utter a word.
In the video, onlookers could be heard saying the police officer should be beaten.
Last week, Whatsup News picked up information that two persons were arrested and whisked to the Kaneshie Police Station for printing fake Ghana Card in an obscure location at night in a house located at North Kaneshie.
The latest reported arrest at the Kaneshie Police station reinforced rife suspicions that a major racket of fake ID cards was blossoming across the country.
The culprits currently caged at the Kaneshie Police station were reportedly caught in a house near the St. Theresa’s area in North Kaneshie.
The Police is said to have recovered several registration equipment. Incidentally, the NIA has an official registration centre within that same precinct. It is unclear if the equipment confiscated by the police has any link to the official NIA equipment in the area.
It is also unclear if those arrested are official NIA workers or hoodlums who had just hijacked the process. However, the action of the police harassing the whistle-blower gives the fake racket a curious twist.
