The Volta Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Mr Ebenezer Francis Doku, has been reassigned to the national headquarters with immediate effect.
DCOP Doku is now the Deputy Director General of Special Duties.
A police source confirmed the reassignment in an interview with the Daily Graphic on Monday.
No reason was given for this.
Recently there was a misunderstanding between some police officers who were on duty and the youth of Alavanyo Dzogbedze following an operation against persons dealing in arms and Indian hemp.
There was speculation that the clashes were caused by the long-standing dispute between the people of Alavanyo and Nkonya.
