The Chief of Gomoa Fetteh, Nana Abor Yamoah II, has commended the Accra Regional Police Command on efforts being made to flush out the activities of land guards in the region, and prayed the Police National Headquarters to extend same operation to the Central Region.

According to the Chief, if the police are looking for an area that has become a centre point or headquarters for land guard operations, then it is Gomoa Fetteh.

He said this group of miscreants had become so notorious that the Kasoa police, that are supposed to clampdown on their activities, are unable to match them boot for boot, resulting in fear and insecurity in that part of the Central Region.

Nana Abor Yamoah II, in an exclusive interview with The Chronicle over the weekend, indicated that land guards, apart from stealing people’s landed properties with brutal force, they also indulge in other criminal activities like armed robbery and indiscriminate killings of innocent citizens.

He said life is increasingly becoming dangerous for residents in these areas, because anybody can become a target or victim of these ” scoundrels, wretched, lawless, villains, murderers and trespassers, who have no consideration and respect for human lives.”

Nana Abor Yamoah II grieved over the two police personnel who were shot last week by some gunmen in the area, quering: “If those trained to provide security are being killed in this manner, what hope does the citizen have?”

“It will surprise you that some of the leaders of the land guards are not even from Ghana, but sister African countries. They have built strong connections and acquaintances with people in the security forces and other high office holders as a cover up,” he said.

He alleged that leaders of these bandits groups can sometimes give expensive gifts to security officers posted to the area to ensure the peace and safety of the people. This, he argued, sometimes makes it very difficult for these security men to cause the arrest of the land guards when they infringe upon the law.

“The challenge of these killings by the land guards is that some of them go unreported,” he said, and suggested to the police to first do a house cleaning exercise by reshuffling the Kasoa and Millennium City personnel.

In his view, some of the officers had unduly overstayed and needed to be posted elsewhere, because familiarity breeds contempt.

He argued that because the people and police officers had become too familiar with themselves, enforcement of the law has undoubtedly been difficult.
