Ghanaian police authorities have sanctioned five female police officers over what officials termed “inappropriate use of police berets” as bridesmaids at a colleague’s wedding.
The five from the Ahafo Region were seen in a video wearing jumpsuits with their berets while serving as bridesmaids for one of their colleagues, reports Starrfm.com.gh.
The videos show the officers singing in a jubilant mood as they usher their colleague into the world of marriage.
The police women, according to reports, have been ordered to return to their training school at Pwalugu – 765 kilometers from the capital Accra – to be sanctioned.
Constables Diana Kumi, Lydia Adu, Agnes Kyere, Winifred Aboagyewaa and Barbara Botchway are to undergo eight weeks of intensive training again at the school.
Senior police officers said they needed permission from the Service before using the official uniforms and failure to do that breached the Police Uniform Code, Police Code of Ethics and the administration’s policy on social media use.
The five have since rendered an unqualified apology to the Ghanaian police chief James Oppong-Boanuh (IGP).
