The Commission of Inquiry into the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence has recommended a SWAT Commander, DSP Samuel Kojo Azugu be removed.
DSP Azugu with the National Security apparatus was in charge of operations at the Bawaleshie polling station where the violence was recorded.
At least 16 people were injured after DSP Azugu’s mask-wearing men laid siege at the residence of the National Democratic Congress parliamentary candidate who was believed to have stockpiled arms.
The Emile Short Commission said he failed to properly command and control his men.
DSP Azugu told the Commission, his men over-reacted during the January 31, 2019 by-election in the Greater Accra region.
