Meanwhile, Mr. Sukparu has reported the incident to the Sissala West District Police Command for investigation.


In as much as I don’t encourage robbery, I think these politicians should be the target of the bandits if they chose to strike. They should live the ordinary Ghanaians alone and take it out on this people. Let them feel the pressure the ordinary Ghanaian is facing. All this is as result of their bad governance. I have no pity for the wicked.

The rate at which this robbery cases are growing up in this country is becoming too alarming. In a way or the other, for all you may know , those guys might be from his own constituency. Since of our Maps are not willing to help the youth, the next thing they will do is to lunch an attack on them surprisingly.
