We never smuggled fertilizer to Burkina Faso – Police

The Upper East Regional Police Command denies a publication by The Herald newspaper edition of July 19, 2021 captioned “Bawku: Police Escort PFJ smuggled Fertilizer to Burkina Faso”.

The command is of the view that the publication is calculated to tarnish the image of the Ghana Police Service, as the police have not escorted any truck across any border in the Upper East region.

The police cherish the role of the media in the fight against crime and therefore appeal to media practitioners, especially reporters of The Herald newspaper to verify the information before publication.
