A  resident and member of an adhoc committee aiding investigation in the Tanlesi District over the robberies, Solomon Zinekena T.T.B., has bemoaned that residents, particularly in the Eastern part of the District, are gripped with fear as robbery and attacks on individuals persist.

According to him, “they were very hopeful that the situation would change, looking at the gravity of the effort being made in that regard, but it appears the armed robbers are very smart, bold, and courageous, and they are quite determined, and it appears they have outsmarted and outweighed our DISEC and that of the police.”

The social commentator revealed that on Thursday, September 21, 2023, between the hours of 8 p.m., two gentlemen were robbed, and when the guys got closer, they fired an AK-47 rifle into the ground and commanded them to kneel down. They searched and took their phones, money, and a motorbike.

He said one of them identified the robbers as a known Fulani who has been dealing in cattle business with his uncle, and the matter was subsequently reported, and they have been arrested and are before court.

Mr. Zinekena said while this case is pending in court, another robbery occurred over the weekend at Datoko, where the robbers made away with two Honda motorbikes and one Express Motorbike.

He noted that the police deployed in the area are not to be faulted because “looking at the police and the resources and logistics available to them and the vast nature of Tanlesi, especially the Talensi East enclave, they might not be able to cover all the routes and where the robbery has been taking place”.

He recounted that “the police may be here and they are robbing other places, and the police would rush to that place and they are robbing elsewhere, and the information we are now having is that these robbers will now come out and put themselves into groups according to the routes to operate”.

Mr. Zinekana, however, bemoaned that the interference by a resident who have his cattle with these Fulanis is disturbing, as he is claiming the innocence of the Fulanis despite the fact that the case is before a competent court of jurisdiction and their innocence, or otherwise, would be determined.

“This man even threatened me and I am yet to report it to the police”, he added

The social commentator, who is also a member of an adhoc committee in the area aiding investigations, called on the Ghana police service to intensify their operations in the area by deploying more men and involving the military to restore security and calm down anxieties.
