Police caution public against use of fire arms at social gathering

The Accra Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Iddi Seidu, has cautioned against the use of fire arms during festive occasions within the Accra metropolis.

He said the disturbing trend of illegal acquisition and use of arms during social gathering, especially at weddings and outdooring events as well as street fights amongst the youth posed danger to the citizenry which must be curtailed.

The comments come against the backdrop of an accidental shooting of a 26- year- old woman during a traditional wedding ceremony at Nima in Accra last Tuesday.

The Regional Commander gave the caution when he paid a courtesy call on the Ayawaso Wangara Chief, Sarauta Alhaji Imoro Baba Issah and other sub-chiefs at his palace in Nima in Accra on Monday.

The meeting was to discuss how to improve security issues in the Zongo communities and its environs.

He was accompanied by Director-General Operations, DCOP Mohammed Suraj, Nima Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Abraham Acquaye and the Regional Public Relations Officer, DSP Juliana Obeng.

DCOP Iddi Seidu in his remarks expressed concern over the menace of indiscipline and disregard for traffic regulations.

The Regional Commander called for peace and urged the chiefs to collaborate with the police to fight against insecurity and to restore discipline and sanity in the region.

The Director-General Operations, DCOP Suraj said that the Police was determined to weed out the bad nuts who were not willing to change from their criminal ways.

He said the command would give no room for consideration or familiarity to people found culpable of the law.

The Director General assured that the police would apply all strength in ensuring that the region was free from crime and insecurity.

The Ayawaso Wangara Chief, Sarauta Alhaji Imoro Baba Issah, commended the Commander and his entourage for the visit.

He pledged the support of the chiefs to the police to clamp down on crimes in the country.
