Retool security agencies to fight crime – Minority demands

The Minority in Parliament wants the government to immediately re-tool the country’s security services to ensure the safety of citizens.

This they contend will help the services discharge their duties efficiently in combating crime.

The call follows recent cases of crime recorded in the country with the latest being the killing of a Police Officer on duty last Sunday dawn at the Kwabenya District Police station.

Suspected armed robbers raided the police station, attacked the officer on duty and freed seven cell inmates.

The police are currently on a manhunt for the seven fugitives, as well as the suspected armed robbers who attacked the Kwabenya police station.

Speaking to Citi News, Minority spokesperson on Interior and Defense, James Agalga, said the government must expedite actions to avert further crimes.

“We want to see the police service properly retooled. We want to see the Armed Forces properly retooled. With time if we don’t see that happening definitely we are going to be asking questions. We want it to be done almost immediately because our security agencies are over stretched.”

“We have received reports to the effect that the MCE of Wa [Municipal Assembly] has also been attacked, on Christmas day, the MP for Asunafo South, Eric Opoku was attacked, the NPP Chairman for Akyem Akroso was attacked. In his own words he had to return fire in order to repel his assailants. These things clearly are a reflection of the state of our security. So we need to ensure that our security services are retooled and right strategies are put in place,” he added.
