Asafo Market Traders lament over insecurity
Kumasi in the Ashanti Region has become risky due to the activities of armed robbers,pick pockets and phone snatchers.
Traders at the Asafo market have lamented bitterly to the government to come to their aid to help curb the high rate of robbery at Asafo.
The Assembly member for Asafo electoral area,Hon. Ernest Okai speaking with Sir Mike on the show dubbed “ASANTEMAN DAWURO” on Asanteman fm today stated that they are engaging the leadership of those operating cold stores within the market to see how best they can do to get a police post at Asafo.
He added that he has written a petition to the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) lobbying for a permanent police station which has been approved and all the necessary drawings have been done which is also awaiting approval from the Police.
“If we get the approval,we are going to kickstart the project and I think it’s going to help solve these kind of issues.”
