Anti-robbery unit of the Ghana police service at Aboabo No.2, a community in the Ashanti region have embarked on a massive demolition exercise to destroy ghettos and hideouts of criminals in the community. The exercise was instigated following the surge in robbery cases and the constant torment of innocent citizens by criminals which has created fear and panic. We still have fresh memories of the gruesome murder that occurred at the same place, during the sacred Eid prayers last week in mind, where 16 year old boy, Gafaru Kasim was shot and killed by unknown gunman.
The people in the community remain furious and have sworn to get to the buttom of the matter aside the ongoing police investigations. However the mass demolition is incession in collaboration with the indigens of the community to destroy all potential hiding places of these criminals.
The demolition was preceded with a raid by the anti-robbery task force last week Sunday, in a bid to ambush some suspects in the ghettos, however the suspects had a tip off and took their heels before the police stormed the place. The demolition became an option, to destroy all the hideouts of these criminals to drive them away. The place of the demolition is identified as Kasan Boller and the exercise was videoed by observers as ghettos, kiosks and dilapidated structures where pull down and burnt to ashes.The anti-robbery unit discovered some bullets, knifes and phones these suspect have left behind.
Take a look at the exercise with the video link below.
