There has been a recent wave of activity in the nation where the notion of an armed robber plundering our valuables during the dead of night is gradually becoming a thing of the past.

There has been a new method of thievery going in the country with the perpetrators posing to be personally, friends, family of people in order to loot their belongings.

Those involved in the act target weddings, public celebration, engagements, churches and a host of other programmes.

The perpetrators during offertory take the opportunity to rob members of the congregation and even pillage property that members of the congregation left in their vehicles.

The wedding crashers are the most notorious of the bunch. These people do away with the valuables on the gift tables as also the expensive liqueur at the event without the knowledge of the organisers. They pose as personal, friends or family to gain access to the valuables only to steal it.

A recent revelation by one of the victims to the Mirror indicated that her clothes and cash had been stolen at her traditional marriage ceremony in East Legon. She narrated that the lady on the pretext of being the bride’s best friend did away with a pan of fresh kente clothing.

Another story of wedding crashing in Accra where Emelia Appiah went to the home of a bride on the morning of her wedding on the pretext of being part of her dressing team. She was, however, turned away and she subsequently followed the bride to the church where she was to be wed and then impersonated a woman who was in charge of the gifts table. She was granted access to the gifts only for her to do away with the gifts and envelopes worth 5000 euros.

This seems to be the current phenomena going on in the country. During the science and math’s quiz the Dr Elsie Effah Kaufmann, the quiz mistress for the competition lost her handbag and went on air to plead with those who stole her bag to return it.

She later revealed that her purse containing her ID, ATM Card and other valuables had been dropped at the School of Engineering Sciences.
