I will set up special forces against armed robbers – Akufo-Addo

Flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has promised to assemble a Special Forces unit in the Ghana Police Service and station them on various highways to combat highway robberies in the major trading centers across the country.

Delivering a speech during a campaign at Yeji in the Brong Ahafo region, Nana Addo indicated that armed robbers have made it a point to attack traders on highways and collect their valuables.

“When you vote me into power, I will set up ‘special units’ to deal with armed robbery on the highway. We are going to stop all those corrupt exercises” he stated.

Rate of highway robberies on traders in Atebubu and Techiman have increased dramatically this year.

It is due to these incidents that the NPP flag bearer, Nana Akufo-Addo said he will deal severely with the menace if he is given the nod as President of Ghana.
