Bawjiase: Angry Youth Demolish Fuel Station

Some angry youth of Awutu Bawjiase in the Central region on Tuesday demolished structures of a yet to be completed fuel station inside the Bawjiase market.

The youth cite security concerns as the reason for demolishing the uncompleted structure.

They explained that several warnings and subsequent letters to authorities in the area and region to step in to stop the said construction of the fuel station which is sited at the middle of the town has proven futile.

According to them, the location of the filling station can cause a disaster in case there is an explosion in the future. They added that several letters and petition to the Central Regional Minister and the Environmental Protection Agency have also yielded no results.

They also alleged that the owner of the fuel station is a security coordinator at the office of the Vice President and due to that, all the agencies have failed to act on their behalf.

Meanwhile, Awutu Bawjiase District Police commander, DSP Bernard Norgan has described the action of the Youth as unfortunate and says his outfit is investigating the issue to bring the culprits to book.
