According to the U.S. State Department report, over 500 persons die every year to violent crimes. Figures from the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) also shows that 1.2 million unregistered guns are in circulation across the country.
Former president, John Dramani Mahama, has placed the blame on President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo for this scourge in armed robbery cases. He alleges that; “arms, ammunition and uniforms for state security have been given to vigilante groups”.
As Ghanaians head to the polls on December 7, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) has deployed exactly 62,794 security officers to all places in the country prone to violence.
This is to ensure peace and stability in what has been described as a knife-edged election between the incumbent president, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo and his contender, John Dramani Mahama.
