Residents of Tenbibiano near Obom in the Ga South Municipality of the Greater Accra Region are in a state of shock after some suspected land guards set the newly built Police station which is set to be commissioned this week ablaze.
The suspected land guards vandalised the glass doors before setting all furniture in the Commander’s office ablaze.
Information gathered by EIB Network’s Central Regional Correspondent Yaw Boagyan indicates that Tenbibian, Obom and Ashalaja has been declared as a no go area due to Land Guard activities.
Sources indicate that the police station was set ablaze to prevent police officers from interfering in their criminal activities.
Assembly Member for Kweku Pamfo Electoral area Jonas Kwabena Tenge said the people who committed the crime used petrol to set the police station ablaze. No arrests have been made yet.
He said he received a distress call from the people in the community that the police station was burning so he went to the scene and saw the police station on fire.
He said the Chiefs, opinion leaders and residents in the area will have an intensive investigation in collaboration with the police in GA South to arrest those who behind the crime.
