Personnel of the Ghana Police Service and its counterparts in security, the Ghana Armed Forces based in the Upper East Region have been commended for the work they have done to help better the security situation in the region.

The two groups are said to have helped reduce the occurrence of petty and organised crime including motorbike theft, burglary and many others.

The Upper East Regional Minister gave this commendation when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, Friday, July 29, 20222.

“The security situation in the Upper East Region is fantastic. It is not perfect but it is fantastic now. When I took office, the security situation was far from what is it now. We have done a lot of work and I hail the military and the police and all the other agencies that help in the security monitoring,” he said.

Mr. Yakubu continued to say that “despite a few flashpoints like Bawku, Kandiga and Doba, I think that it is good. People can now ride their motors in the night. People can now go out at 12am. People can now go to discos.”

“In those days when I came, you will be riding your motor at night and someone will slap you and snatch it. All these things are far better.”

Recently, the Upper East Regional police command identified areas such as Soe, Zaare, Yorigo, and Yikene as hotspots for motorbike snatching in the Bolgatanga Municipality.

The Upper East Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Dr. Sayibu Pabi Gariba described canker of motorbike snatching as challenging to the command.

“The challenge I have in Bolga is that it appears like they are training young boys and they growing up, all that they learn is how to snatch motorbikes. And this is apparent in Soe, Zaare, Yorogo. Nowadays, Yikene is also becoming a hotspot for us. We’ve put in structures to combat all this. But when you try to eliminate this, arrest them, jail them, and then another small group resurfaces.”
