The British High Commissioner to Ghana, Harriet Thompson, has expressed surprise at the Inspector General of Police’s (IGP) response to a tweet she sent about Oliver Barker-Vormawor. 

She claimed that the tweet, which was in response to the “Fix The Country” convener’s recent arrest, was harmless, and that the response surprised her.

Ambassador Thompson in an interview on GhOne stated that, she didn’t mean to incite  Ghanaians with the tweet.

“That was not the intention, and my experience, Ghana is peace loving nation where people have the right to express themselves, they do have the right to come out to protest against things that matter to them. 

“A tweet like that will not get Ghanaians on the street in my view. It looks like my tweet wasn’t received as it was intended. I didn’t expect a response from the IGP at all.”

“If I was told there are chances like that I will not be tweeting like that that’s clearly not my intention but I haven’t seen anything like that for the time I’ve been here that will suggest his response”.

the Inspector General of Police in a stern statement, claimed the High Commissioner’s tweet amounted to intervention in Ghana’s internal security concerns.
