A serious issue is gradually gaining ground on the streets of Accra, the capital city of Ghana. The pending doom was brought to light on social media by one Nii Ashley and shared by a lot of social media users notably Teacher Kwadwo.
According to Nii Ashley, a new crop of streets beggars have emerged and they destroy your car if you refuse or fail to give them nokofio. They use stones and other sharp objects to scratch the car as punishment for refusing to be benevolent to them.
Nii Ashley urged the Ghana Police Service to be proactive on the issue before it gains more ground because car owners might start retaliating and that's it going to end very well.
A looming national security threat. The earlier it’s stopped, the better. The child beggars have started scratching cars of people who refuse them alms with stones and sharp objects. In other cases, they hit the cars with whatever they hold in anger leaving some cars damaged.
When owners react, the parents of the beggars come from nowhere (usually out of sight) to fight for their wards.
Hope we don’t wait for these beggars to graduate from attacking cars to people.
How do they even get into the country?
How are they seen by authorities without questioning?
Ghana Police Service can you help avert this looming calamity.
