There have been increased gun attacks in the Tema Metropolis

Gun attacks in Tema not robberies – Police
The Tema Regional Police Command has stated that
the two recent gun attacks in the Tema Metropolis,
were not armed robberies as being reported in the
media.

In the past few weeks, the Metropolis has recorded
two gun attacks, at the Tema Industrial Area and
Community four in which a Burkinabe transporter Mr
Pares Iddrisu was shot in the thigh and an amount
of 25 million CFA was collected from him by four
unknown armed men on two motorbikes.

In a press statement dated May 24, 2017 and signed
by Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Joseph
Benefo Darkwah, Tema Regional Police Public
Affairs Officer, noted that “intelligence gathered
revealed that, it was a business
misunderstanding”.

ASP Darkwah added that the shootings were
instances of some of them trying to defraud their
business partners.

He however indicated that some suspects have been
arrested in relations to the incidents and were
currently in police custody assisting in
investigations.

Measures, he said, have been put in place to
augment already laid down strategies by the
Command to address the emerging issue, which he
acknowledged was threatening the peace being
enjoyed by the residents of Tema.

He also added that the Tema Regional Police
Commander had met with stakeholders especially
representatives from the Burkina Shippers Council,
Niger Shippers Council and Mali Shippers Council
and their respective chamber of commerce to
deliberate on solutions to end the trend.

ASP Darkwah gave the assurance that the Command
was ready to fight crime in the Region to the
barest minimum therefore calling for calm among
residents and reporting of suspicious happenings
and characters to the nearest police station.
