Residents attack police, near Songor Lagoon

Indigenes of Salom, a salt winning community in the Ada West District, attacked a security investigative team from the Sege Police Command, vandalising a private vehicle used by the team. The mob smashed the windscreen and side glasses of the car.

The Police Commander warned the public against attacking police personnel, who are mandated to provide security for life and properties. The Assembly Member for Toflokpo Electoral Area, Mr Tsiani Gadugah, called for calm as investigations into the issue start immediately.

The police appeal to the Police to remain calm, they are custodians of law and order so we beg them not to take any hasty action against the community. Any act of vandalism is unacceptable; we appeal also to the police to remain Calm. Any attack on police is unacceptable.
