The Police and the La-Nkwantang-Madina Municipal Assembly, on Friday, demolished a number of structures being occupied by squatters and also serving as a brothel, behind the Redco Flats and the Ghana National Fire Service Unit at Madina, Accra.
The six-hour exercise was supervised by Richard Asante, Municipal Engineer, and 40-police personnel under the command of Superintendent Kwesi Annor Arhin, Madina District Commander.
Mr Asante said the squatters were first served with notices of eviction in July 2013, September 2013 and in December 2013.
He said the last reminder was served this month.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Arnit Asampana, Madina Divisional Operational Police Commander narrated that in the evenings, the area is often occupied by armed criminals who harass people.
Therefore, the exercise had to be carried out to stem their activities.
