No More Bullion Van And Bank Robberies As Dampare Does The Unthinkable

Armed robbers have over the years targeted banks and the various customers who transact business with them. The armed robbers are able to target and trace their victims who have withdrawn huge sums of monies and attack them at a safe location without a trace.

They mostly rob them of their monies at gunpoint and sometimes kill them in the process. Just recently, some armed robbers shot a young man at Cape Coast and took away his money which he had withdrawn from the bank. Similar incidences have happened in the Greater Accra Region recently with the armed robbers bolting without a trace.

Apart from this, police officers who escort bullion vans have received their shares of the attacks. In one of the instances, a young police officer, Constable Emmanuel Osei was shot and died instantly when the armed robbers attacked the bullion van he was escorting in the Greater Accra Region.

The situation has become a problem to the Ghana police service but COP George Akuffo Dampare seems to have a solution and has done the unthinkable. The new Inspector General of Police has shown that he is ready to fight crime at all levels and as a result, the source must be tackled. The leadership of the banking sector, including the Governor of the Bank of Ghana his Deputy, and some Chief Executive Officers of the various banks, have been engaged, and as a result, strategies have been cracked on how to deal with the rampant money heist in the country.

They have discussed the safe practices to transfer money without armed robbers having any hints. Even if they attack, the police will be able to act quickly to foil the robbery. The aim of the strategy is to ensure that the customer, police officers, and the entire banking fraternity remain safe as far as the armed robbers are concerned. This is a huge blow to armed robbers because their operations are challenged. Even though the police did not release the strategies they have adopted to the public, it is promising to be a tough time for the armed robbers. The good news is that, police officers will now escort bullion vans safely and any armed robber who tries to attack will not be spared.

This can only be described as one of the unthinkable strategies of COP George Akufu Dampare as most of his intelligence has refused to fail. The meeting with the bankers is another panacea to end armed robbery and its related crimes in the country.
