The Divisional Queenmother of Sakumono, a suburb of Accra, Naa Borley Wulu II, has lauded the Batsonaa Divisional Crime Officer, Superintendent Bernard Baba Ananga, for his exemplary leadership qualities leading to the reduction in the crime situation in Sakumono.
According to the Queenmother, the leadership qualities of the Baatsonaa Divisional Crime Officer has contributed immensely in sustaining peace in the area making it possible for residents to go about their daily activities.
In an interview with Ghanaian Voice in Accra, Naa Borley Wulu II, noted that the sense of commitment, dedication, zeal and professionalism exhibited by Superintendent Bernard Baba Ananga is encouraging.
She revealed that on 31st March, 2019, the Crime Officer and his team embarked on a patrol at the Ramsar site late in the night which resulted in warding off the criminals.
“The Superintendent and his team came to patrol here three times within one day in the bush where am staying and is far from the town.” She stated.
“They patrolled at the area around 12:00 midnight, 2am and 3:30 in the morning just to protect me and residents at the area.” She added.
She further noted that such exercise was the first of its kind in the community as he ensures that law and order is at its peak. She added that the act has kept criminals at bay thereby encouraging innocent citizens to have their deserved rest.
Naa Borley Wulu II, therefore encouraged Superintendent Bernard Baba Ananga to continue with the hard to better promote the image of the Ghana Police Service.
“This is a remote area when you are been attacked and shouting nobody will assist you.” She stated.
Touching on four acres of land the Forestry Commission allocated to the Sakumono Divisional Council upon the request of the Sakumono Mantse (chief), Nii Alabi Gbene, for a community project in the area, she said the land has been taken over by landguards.
Naa Borley Wulu II, alleged that some Traditional leaders of Nungua who have been selling these lands indiscriminately are the brain behind the activities of land guards in the area.
She therefore appealed with Superintendent Bernard Baba Ananga and his team to intensity their patrol both day and night to arrest those land guards who have been terrorising resident in the Sakumono community.
Naa Borley Wulu II, also expressed gratitude to the Inspector General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh, for posting such hardworking Police Officer at the area to combat crime.
Naa Borley Wulu II, also urged Neighbourhood Watchdog Committees to assist the Police personnel as they maintain law and order for the peace of all.
