The police officer captured in a viral video in a drunken state somewhere in Cape Coast has been identified, the Ghana Police Service has said.
He has been interdicted to make way for investigations into his conduct.
The officer was captured in a video in front of a drinking bar with heavy eyes and legs.
The commentary over the video accused the officer of denting the image of the Service and could have been recruited on protocol, calling for his dismissal.
But the Service said the suitability of the officer to remain in office or not will be based “on the outcome of investigations and the recommendation of the Police Medical Board”.
A clinical psychologist has also been assigned him to evaluate him and offer him the necessary support.
“In addition, he will be referred to the Police Medical Board for thorough review and support towards rehabilitation where necessary,” a statement signed by the Directo-General of Public Affairs ACP Kwesi Ofori said.
