The Upper East Regional Police Command has given an update on the state of security in the region.
Following recent reported cases of alleged attacks and armed robbery activities that have resulted in varied casualties, there has been a general concern on the growing levels of insecurity in the country.
These developments have begun to create panic and anxiety among most Ghanaians who are worried that the attacks and armed robbery activities could possibly spill-over to other regions across the country; and have called on government and the security agencies to take swift actions to investigate and apprehend perpetrators of all reported cases.
But speaking on A1 Radio’s Reporters Visit on October 13, 2020, the Upper East Regional Officer in charge of Public Relations, ASP David Fianko –Okyere, said the state of security in the region was calm and has no cause for alarm.
According to him, the Regional Police Command has put in place effective measures to ensure that they clamp down on any person or groups of persons who may want to engage in acts that breach the peace and security of the region.
Describing the Upper East Region as relatively peaceful, ASP Fianko- Okyere indicated their state of readiness to snuff out any outbreak of lawlessness; citing a recently reported alleged murder case that involve one Mallam Ali, and the swift manner in which they worked to bring him (the culprit) to book.
He urged residents to remain calm, co-operate with the security forces to maintain the enviable record of Upper East, by not engaging in acts that could mar the good name of the region.
