The Chief of Gomoa Adzintem has called on the acting Inspector-General of Police to increase police visibility to help fight crime in the area.
The call comes after a 13-year-old girl was gang-raped by some herdsmen in the community.
Speaking to Citi News during the acting IGP, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare’s visit to the community, Nana Asare Andoh said “we have appealed to the IGP to beef up security in the area as crime is on the increase in recent times.”
Touching on the rape case, he was hopeful that the IGP will help bring justice to the family of the 13-year-old girl.
The 13-year-old girl was gang-raped a few days ago.
