Your claim that violent crimes are on an alarming rate false- Police to GBA

The Ghana Police Service has disputed assertions by the Ghana Bar Association that violent crimes and robbery cases were on an alarming rate.

The Police in a statement stated that “there is no upsurge in crime. The Service is on top of the security situation.”

The GBA in a statement released on Monday noted that there was an increasing spate of armed robbery and other violent crimes in the country.

The assertion by the GBA came after a member of the GBA, lawyer  Richard Badombie, was allegedly killed armed men in the Savannah Region last Saturday.

The lawyer was shot dead when the occupants of a Hyundai Accent saloon car with registration number GN 9890-17 were attacked between Banda Nkwanta and Nuoyiri.

But the Police has disputed the claims by the GBA saying  it remained “committed to its crime-fighting efforts”.

“We fight crime every day and treat crime with the same urgency and same professional attitude, and we regret the loss of every life”, the police added in a statement.

The Police further admonished the public and other special-interest groups to be circumspect in the commentary on the matter. “We wish to assure that we remain focused and committed to fighting crime in the country”.
