Sources said the suspension came about after the polices officers were alleged to be condoning and negotiating a case of Robbery which incident occurred on the 12th June,2022 at the LEONCO Filling Station along Main Motor Road Congo Cross, where a popular musician Amadu Bah alias LAJ was said to have robbed some workers at the filling station.
Sources also say all the police officers are presently under investigation at the Complaints Discipline and Internal Investigation Department (CDIID).
Efforts made by this media to get the official statement of the Police Media Boss pertaining to this matter have so far proved futile.
Sources also stated that in less than two years, Mr. JK Alpha has been suspended twice. Firstly, he was suspended when he was Head of CID for allegedly compromising his office and he has now been suspended again as LUC of Congo Cross Police Division for condoning a very serious case.
