The Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr, says the idea that there’s a condition of instability in the nation following the as of late detailed instances of wrongdoing is implausible.

Despite the fact that he recognizes that there is a test with security in the country, he thinks summing up the security circumstance dependent on a couple of wrongdoing cases is uncalled for, and a misrepresentation.

“There are a few group who may feel shaky comparative with specific occurrences of savagery, particularly burglary, that have occurred lately or previously. It is normal… and undoubtedly such people can communicate it to their family members or local area individuals. I’m not going to propose that there are individuals in this country who don’t feel uncertain or are not worried about these episodes. What I’m not very certain about is whether you can move from this right start and sum it up to recommend that there is a condition of public frailty. I believe that is somewhat of a misrepresentation and not an authentic picture,” he said.

Kweku Baako offered the comment on Joy FM’s Newsfile on Saturday, June 19, 2021, while sharing his perspectives on late burglary cases in the country.

Two bullion vans were assaulted by looters at two better places this week. One happened at Jamestown in Accra, while the other one occurred close to Gomoa Dominase in the Central Region.

Two people – a cop and a broker—lost their lives in the burglary assault at Jamestown while an undefined measure of cash was taken by the looters.

With the occurrence that happened in the Central Region, the bullion van team figured out how to get away from the assault safe.

There have been different instances of thefts and killings announced in different pieces of the country.

A few people have recommended that the bullion van assaults and other sunshine burglaries recorded in the country as of late show a disappointment with respect to the country’s security organizations.

The Minority chief, Haruna Iddrisu, has accused the expanding reports of equipped theft episodes in pieces of the country on what he calls a “breakdown in lawfulness.”

As per him, the President has neglected to guarantee that Ghanaians are protected to approach their day by day exercises.

“In the event that what we are perusing is anything to pass by, we as a whole should all in all communicate our failure in the President and his treatment of issue of individual wellbeing and security. It implies that there is the progressive breakdown of the rule of law, and I implore that we don’t get to a state in our country where the guard himself isn’t protected, on the grounds that when the gatekeeper himself isn’t gotten, when the police officer who should ensure lives and property himself isn’t gotten, then, at that point it fails to impress anyone.”

The Minority Leader likewise called for significant changes in the police and security arrangement, adding that the area should be enough resourced.

Yet, Kweku Baako accepts the security organizations, particularly the Ghana Police Service, should be complimented for their benevolence in handling the country’s security challenges notwithstanding the restricted assets available to them.

“It’s anything but reasonable for say the police are not doing anything by any means. I think they are doing a ton inside the imperatives of restricted assets. It is smarter to empower them all things considered,” he said.

The Ghana Police Service has dispatched a manhunt for the people who assaulted the bullion van at Jamestown. The assistance has put a GHS20,000 abundance on the top of the culprits.
