THE Queen of the Wenchi Traditional Area in the Brong Ahafo Region, Nana Toa Snamangyedua, has appealed to the Ghana Police Service to help maintain law and order in the unending chieftaincy feud that has bedevilled the area.
She noted that certain individuals had taken advantage of the chieftaincy dispute to visit mayhem and inflict wounds on innocent and law-abiding citizens of the area.
Nana Snamangyedua made the appeal when she donated two computers, accessories and a printer valued at GH¢3,000 to the Wenchi Divisional Police Headquarters at Wenchi.
She said the donation of the computers was in response to an appeal made by the Divisional Commander, Superintendent Samuel Kwame Nkrumah Akumia, when she visited him at his office.
The Divisional Command would keep one of the computers and the other sent to the charge office of the Wenchi Police Station to enhance record keeping and data processing.
Nana Snamangyedua also appealed to the divisional command to intensify its night patrols in the area to clamp down on criminals who operate in the area.
She called on the people to co-operate with the police in their fight against crime by providing them with information and expressed the hope that the computers would be put to good use.
Nana Snamangyedua also called on her people to assist the police since the government alone could not shoulder all their logistical needs to enhance their work.
Supt. Akumia, who received the computers on behalf of the acting Inspector General of Police, thanked the queen for the gesture and pledged that the service would take good care of the computers.
He appealed to the people in the area to assist the police by providing them with vital information in their resolve to clamp down on criminals in the area, adding that the computers would go a long way to help the division in its record keeping.
Supt. Akumia called on other citizens in the area to emulate their queen by assisting the command with other office equipment such as a photocopier to enhance administrative work.
