Adobewura-Ntobroso Community Miners in the Atwima Mponua District have donated a 4×4 brand new pick up to the Nyinahin Police Station to help combat crime in the area.
Speaking in an interview after the presentation, Hon. Charles E.K Nsiah aka Charlsee, Assembly Member for Aniamoa – Ntobroso electoral area and PRO for the Adobewura-Ntobroso Community Miners Association said, association thought it wise that Aniamoa, Ntobroso and Adobewure crime rate keeps on increasing per day but the police sometimes find it difficult to cramp up on these criminals as expected, due to lack of enough logistics and machinery like Police Patrol cars, equipments etc.
“Police personnel within the area are most at times not able to arrive on time when they are called to rescue victims from armed robbers due to lack of enough cars. So, this car is given to them to enhance their work effectively”. Hon. E.K Nsiah added.
He said, they want everyone to benefit from the little they gain from the community mining activity in the district. Even though, he said, the association doesn’t have enough fund to facilitate all problems within the area but gradually they will try their possible best to support the police and other sectors.
He stated that, since they have been able to provide them with these pick up, it is going to help facilitate their work effectively to help reduce crime rate.
He ceased the opportunity to advise his fellow community miners in the various areas to as a matter of urgency, learn how to support their communities, district and region as a whole.
Mr. E.K Nsiah revealed that this is not the first or the last time the association is doing this to support people in the area. He said the association had already supported many people including PPEs for covid-19 combat and many others.
Speaking in an interview with the media after receiving the vehicle, Chief Supt. Prince Jude Kobina, Nkawie Divisional Police Commander lauded the community miners Association for such a wonderful move to help the police. He however asked for the cooperation from the residents of Nyinahin and its environs and promised to work with the car to stem crime wave on the Adobewura-Ntobroso road and other areas.
He also urged Nyinahin police command to take very good care of the vehicle since any careless taking and reckless driving could lead to the earlier destruction of the vehicle, an act which will face penalty.
Again, he made a passionate appeal to everyone who can support the police with equipment and some covid-19 equipment as cases increase rapidly. He finally warned criminals to desist from their acts since the police were fiercely going to descend on them, with now that the community miners have added a vehicle to their strength.
