Tensions rose when a GIS Inspector agreed to have their bags searched but refused the request for a personal search of the officers, citing protocol that prohibits male officers from searching female officers. This stipulation was not well received by the GPHA security team, leading to a heated exchange of insults and subsequent physical harassment.

The confrontation escalated to the point where uniforms were torn, with one officer, identified as AICO II Boadu, sustaining damage to his attire.

This altercation highlights underlying tensions and the need for clear protocols and mutual respect between different security agencies operating within the port. The incident underscores the importance of communication and adherence to established guidelines to prevent such conflicts from arising in the future.
