Assembly Members of the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly have expressed worry about the state of security within the metropolis following an escalation in robbery.
At the Metropolitan Assembly’s second ordinary meeting on Wednesday, the absence of street lights and police patrol teams in most areas within the metropolis were concluded by assembly members as the major cause of robbery in Cape Coast.
Addressing the house at the meeting, the Metro Chief Executive (MCE) of the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly, Hon. Ernest Arthur explained that though the security agencies have been doing their best to contain all major crime situations, the continuous robbery of residents shows that a lot needs to be done by the police.
He therefore charged the police to up their game in bringing to an end the escalating robbery situation in the metropolis.
The MCE also extended an appeal to hostel owners at Amamoma and its surrounding areas to beef up security to protect students who patronize such hostels.
Hon. Ernest Arthur indicated that the assembly will continue to work with the police within the region to enhance security to reduce the activities of criminals.
