Former National Security adviser Brigadier General Nunoo-Mensah has appealed to government not to only focus on tackling crime from the security aspect but also from the socio-economic perspective of finding jobs for the youth on the street.

He explained that, most of the youth are found on the street selling products that on a normal day individuals will not be happy to sell like dog chains among other funny things.

Brigadier General Nunoo-Mensah is of the view that, the focus has always been on fighting crime from the security aspect leaving the socio-economic challenges leading both young men and women to engage in robbery.

During an interview after a daylight robbery on Tuesday February 27 at Royal Motors, a motorbike retail company in the North Industrial Area in Accra, Brigadier General Nunoo-Mensah said the only way the police can fight this is to rely on good intelligence to fight crime because Accra is very big for them to be everywhere are every time.

Crime cases have been on the ascendency in recent times in some part of the capital Accra, most attacks have been on residence, mobile money vendors and even on Ghana Police Service.
