The District Chief Executive of Bongo in the Upper East Region Peter Ayimbisa has said he is deeply worried about the rising level of insecurity in the district following recent attacks on traders by armed robbers recently.

Speaking on A1 Radio’s DayBreak Upper East Show on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, Mr Ayimbisa said, the situation is very worrying because it is forcing residents and commuters to close very early from work for fear of attacks by armed robbers.

In his bid to address the situation, the DCE says he is putting in all efforts to beef up security in the district by ensuring the police are very visible in the district to deter criminals from taking undue advantage of the situation to rob traders and residents of their belongings especially motorbikes.

Mr Ayimbisa indicated that all attempts to have the police service posting personnel to the Bongo-Soe and Zorko police posts have yielded no results with the police citing reasons such as the structures were not suitable for the purposes of police posts.

He indicated that he will work closely with the paramount chief of the Bongo traditional area to ensure they raise the issue before the new regional police commander with the hope that they can get some few police personnel at the various police posts in the district.

While these efforts are being made, the DCE encouraged opinion leaders of communities within the district to form community watch committees to help police in their communities especially at night to prevent the incident of armed robbery attacks.
