Some suspected armed robbers on Monday broke into the residence of the Member of Parliament for Effiduase-Asokore, Dr. Nana Ayew Afriyie, at Etia in Effiduase, in the Sekyere East District of Ashanti Region.

The robbers made away with some valuable items of the MP including some assorted clothing.

The Effiduase District Police Commander, Superintendent Asare Bediako, said the thieves are currently at large, but investigations have begun.

“I got a call from the District Chief Executive of Sekyere East that there has been a burglary at the MP’s residence so I organized my men to the scene. After inspection, we found out that the suspected thieves broke into the room through the window and took away clothes and other items from his bedroom.

“We have intensified our patrols but we are forming neighborhood watchdogs to assist us in patrolling. The police can’t be everywhere at the same time, so I have discussed with the DCE and other opinion leaders about the formation of the watchdogs to prevent such vices from reoccurring in future,” he said.

This happens to be the second time a Member of Parliament has been attacked within a month in the Ashanti Region.

It will be recalled that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Sekyere Afram Plains, Alex Adomako-Mensah was attacked by some suspected robbers who took away some personal belongings of the MP.
