The recorded cases of armed robbery in the country especially in Greater Accra has been increasing since 2018 started. In most places, the robbers have bolted with money and other items while injuring their victims.

On Tuesday (February 27, 2018) a gang of 4 made away with an undisclosed amount of cash in a daylight operation at the North Industrial Area.

Only 24 hours later, a Lebanese cashier was shot dead in his car as an armed gang trailed him after he had withdrawn 200,000 cedis to pay salaries.

Later in the evening, a  mother was stabbed at Obuasi in the Ashanti region.

This has caused the general public to wonder if the police are on top of issues.

Meanwhile, the top hierarchy crimes have put the police under pressure to demonstrate to the public they are up to the task.
