The Member of Parliament for Zebilla Constituency Cletus Apul Avoka in the Upper East Region has registered his displeasure over what he described as ‘terrible’, the current security situation of the Zebilla District.

He observed that, for the past three years, armed robbery cases have been rampantly recorded in the District and people of the area have the cause to worry.

According to him, almost all the feeder roads and other roads linking Zebilla township and the villages are not motorable, making the environments conducive for criminal operations.

Speaking on Bolgatanga based Dreamz FM and monitored by A1radioonline.com, the lawmaker said, “Almost all our feeder roads or roads going to the various villages are dangerous. And township too is dangerous. Going from Zebilla to Sapielga in the night is a danger. Travelling between Zebilla and Widnaba is dangerous, travelling between Zebilla and Binaba and many other roads are very challenging. And it doesn’t appear we have security on the grounds even though we have police posts around.”

He said, “I think that police alone can not protect us. We must help the police to protect us. When we see suspicious movements of strangers in the area, we must alert the police.”

His comments come on the back of the rampant armed robbery cases recorded in the District in recent times including the daylight robbery attack that led to the death of a class five (5) pupil of the Hariya Primary School, Musah Hassan and injuries of two others on Monday 22nd March, 2021.

However, Mr. Avoka said, he will meet with the National Security Minister and the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to see how the security concerns in the upper east region and particularly the Zebilla District can enhanced.
