The Dansoman divisional police commander, ACP Antwi Tabi, explained that the areas swept by the police are known to be hubs of criminal activity.

“Areas where there are known to be drug dealing bases, this is where we suspected that criminals normally go and sit down and hide and smoke and from there they go and commit such nefarious activities,” he stated.

The police thus decided that anybody found to be in such areas would face arrests because in their view, law abiding citizens had no business in such areas.
