Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings has said he hopes the current spate of armed robberies going on in the country isn't a ploy by the opposition to make the government unpopular.

The former President, who also doubles as the founder of the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) isn't ruing out mischief.

He took to twitter to express this sentiment. He said, "Let us hope the recent robbery and killings is downright plain robbery and not a politically motivated action from within or without, calculated to undermine those in charge of the security machinery in order to pave the way for certain parochial ambitions."
