Director general of the CID, Bright Oduro revealed this to some Ghanaians in Hong Kong on Tuesday
According to the CID, robbery cases have drastically reduced to 15 cases per week as compared to 50 cases weekly between 2002 and 2008.
Director-General of the CID, Bright Oduro disclosed to some Ghanaians in Hong Kong Tuesday that, the decrease in crime rate is due to the war the police have waged on armed robbers.
He said “We are blessed in Ghana [that] we don’t actually record so many crimes [but] there are some that are of concern to all of us especially the police.”
The CID boss noted that even though crime has not subsided substantially in the country, some level of success has been achieved in the fight against armed robbery.
Statistics show that Ghana loses about $50 million to crime yearly, which is largely residential, highway and cybercrimes.
He however indicated that those incidents have reduced after his outfit made some “decent arrests.”
