STMA to establish police post at Kokompe to control crime

0 108

The Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly (STMA) will establish a Police post at the Kokompe Industrial enclave to control crime and maintain law and order. 

In recent times, according to the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MEC), Mr Abdul Issah Mumin says the area has witnessed a surge in crime and other nefarious attitudes making life and living in that zone, a challenging experience.

As a first sign of commitment to combat crime in the area, the Assembly has distributed 120 streetlights to the various sectional heads among the artisans to be placed in designated areas within the enclave to lighten up the area. 

“The invasion of foreigners has contributed to the high rate of crime in the Kokompe area. I have given the community 120 streetlights to help with visibility and there will be an additional 80 lights.”

Another matter of concern, was the growth in the “Sodom and Gomorrah” business which according to the MCE was also fuelling crime in that area—hinting that the Assembly would initiate a process of demolition exercise of unauthorised structures housing such miscreants in the area. 

Mr Justin Joe Ayittey, the Regional Chairman of the Garages Association said the activities of intruders and thieves in the area were making the cost of doing business a hard one. 

And expressed his excitement about the police post and prayed that it would be established on time to curb stealing in the area. 

He said they will collaborate with STMA to demolish all unauthorised structures and also evacuate suspects they believe are contributing to the high rate of crime.
