The Obuasi divisional police commander, DSP Martin Asenso has given an alert to all pickup users in the Obuasi Municipality to make sure their vehicle documents are always with them whenever they use a police checkpoint within Obuasi.
This is in the wake of the theft of three pickup trucks within the last two months in Obuasi. Speaking to Obidehye3 Ofori Amanfo on Nhyira 104.5fm in Kumasi, Mr Asenso said as part of efforts to curb the trend, he and his men would from the beginning of this evening the 5th of July 2021, insist any pickup leaving or entering Obuasi must provide proof of ownership or proof of authority to use .
Where necessary, the CEO of the company in whose name the pickup is, would be called to verify whether or not the driver behind the wheel has the authority to use the vehicle at that time of the day.
All this comes on the back of the theft of the pickup of the 2020 National best cocoa farmer which occurred yesterday 4th July 2021.
