“We contacted the police. Occasionally, they patrol from 8:30 pm to 9:00 pm with their motorbikes and others, but you may never know the time anyone wants to do something bad in the community,” he said.

The Ghana Police Service says it is on top of security in the Ashanti Region amid fears of growing insecurity.

After the Inspector General of Police recently met with regional police heads, the Director of Public Affairs at the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori, said work was ongoing to improve policing in the various regions.

“They have also been tasked to reengineer their operational activities in their respective regions to reduce cases of robbery and other violent crimes.”

For the Ashanti Region, ACP Ofori said, “in no time some gains have been made.”

“Ashanti [Region] in particular, led by DCOP Afful Boakye Yiadom are on course… Now they are fighting robbery in their communities seriously,” he said
