‘The District Command says they don’t have the men’ – they alleged
Following the sad incident of the driver with the National Ambulance Service in the Eastern Region who was shot by some suspected armed robbers few days ago at Aseseeso Akuapim, concerns and questions have been raised from various angles pointing to why there is no police post along the stretch to monitor some of these criminalities ?
As matter of fact. Aseseeso community has a newly built Police Post which the authorities have refused to commission on the grounds of funny, but very unfortunate excuse.
Natives said, the post which was fully completed early last year has been redundant and is fast becoming a haven for reptiles and nematodes..
According to report, the district police command, after inspecting the newly built police station in the community, has refused to send personnel for duty .
While some police posts are seen in containers, others in some small building without enough space in some parts of the country , yet the police force have been deployed to those areas , the unhappy youth of Aseseeso projected that, the regional police command, upon visit to the well constructed facility said , until a fence wall is constructed around the building, it won’t be commissioned .
The police upon several plea, agreed to use the facility, but came out with a shocking excuse.
Realiable source close to the assembly says , “the Assembly and the police has reached a consensus to use the building this time . But the excuse they are giving us now is that they don’t have the men.”
The Natives noted that, the police has cunningly refused to used the facility for the betterment and benefit of the community and neighboring communities for a reason they struggle to comprehend.
