The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. James Oppong-Boanuh says all recorded incidents of deaths and injuries in the just-ended elections are being investigated by the Police Service.

He said the outcome of the investigations would be made known to the public.

Mr Oppong-Boanuh said the elections resulted in five deaths and 17 injuries, including security officers, which nearly marred the smooth conduct of the exercise.

The IGP, who is also the Chairman of the National Election Security Taskforce, said this on Thursday at a media briefing after the declaration of the Presidential and Parliamentary results by the Electoral Commission.

The IGP warned any person or group of persons who intended to foment trouble to desist from such acts because the Taskforce would deal decisively with such elements in line with the laws.

He commended the Taskforce and stakeholders who supported them to effectively discharge their mandate to guarantee the sanctity of the general election.

The Task Force deployed 62,794 personnel nationwide to guard all the 275 collation centres and 40,000 polling stations across the country and ensured law and order in the just-ended presidential and parliamentary elections.

Members of the Taskforce were drawn from the Police Service, Military, Fire Service, Prison Service, Immigration Service, Customs Service, and the Bureau of National Investigations.
