The structures mainly made of plywood, and polythene are situated in the heart of Asankrangwa, Aboi Nkwanta and Wassa Dunkwa.
Some residents told the told Ahobraseye FM’s Kaakyire after the exercise that, they are very excited about the action taken because their marriages were on the verge of collapsing and they could not guarantee their children of better future looking at the situation in the community.
The MCE Mr Lord Nana Tandoh added that their activities pose a security threat since no one can know what or whom they might be bringing to their places.
He again said, this will not a be a one-day exercise but will ensure that they deal with those people in such activities.
