The Member of Parliament for Tema Central, Kofi Brako, has expressed optimism that recent robbery attacks and criminal activities within Tema and its envious will be resolved as soon as possible.
He said the Tema Metropolitan Security Council has instituted measures to address the situation.
In an interview, he said: “We have assessed the security situation in Tema and agreed on a number of measure to be implemented as soon as possible and am very hopeful the situation would be brought to normalcy.”
Mr Brako said some of the proposed measures were to ban the use of motorbikes within the municipality after 6pm and the lighting of all dark spots within the communities, industrial areas and harbour.
On the need for increased security measures in Tema, Mr Brako indicated that the Tema Central Constituency presently was blessed with several security posts in the communities such as 4, 7 and 11, and suggested the re-activation of community watchdog committees as a medium-term measure.
The MP also disclosed that he had filed several questions on the floor of parliament on the security situation in Tema for further deliberations.
Tema has in recent times experienced increasing spate of armed robbery and gruesome murders.
It would be recalled that on March 25, 2014 a Partner of Quasam Forex Bureau was shot in the head in front of his house by two unidentified armed assailants on a motorbike.
