The Central Regional Police Command has demolished some illegal structures, shanties and ghettos within the Cape Coast Metropolis, which have become haven for drug peddlers and criminals to perpetuate their nefarious activities.

      The exercise, which begun in the early hours of Thursday was done in collaboration with the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly under heavy security guard at Ntsin and Anafo, the two most notorious suburbs of Cape Coast.

       DCOP Enoch Adutwum Bediako, Deputy Central Regional Police Commander who led the exercise, later told the media that the occupants were given several warnings by the Metropolitan Assembly to vacate the area, but all warnings fell on deaf ears.

       He said the two communities had become very notorious with criminals from all over the country converging and operating from these ghettos, where all types of narcotic drugs were traded.

       He said the move showed the determination of the Police to flush out all criminals from the Metropolis and assured visitors who would come for the Oguaa Fetu Afahye of sound security during the period.

       “We are not going to end it, after this we are going to monitor. Every evening too, there will be operational activities over here with our men. We have been able to form a neighbourhood watchdog committee, where the youth have voluntarily joined to monitor the area for a peaceful settlement,” he added.

       DCOP Bediako pleaded with the community members to collaborate with the neighbourhood committees and encourage them to monitor and give maximum protection.

       He encouraged them to report to the police when people start to erect new unauthorised structures, for immediate action to be taken.

       Mr Kwabena Spio-Gabbrah, the Assembly Member for Ntsin Electoral Area, expressed disgust at  the negative tag given his electoral, and pledged his readiness to assist the Police to combat crime there.

      He commended the Police for the initiative to drive away criminals from the area, adding that it was in the right direction to uphold law and order.
