“The Police Administration wishes to inform the public that stringent measures have been put in place to provide security coverage across the country for the Easter Celebrations.”
“All Regional Commands, with support from the National Operations, the MTTD, and the Intelligence Directorate are working to ensure that all events organised in various communities are secured and incident-free.”
The police in the press statement also said additional security arrangements have been made for the annual Kwahu Easter Celebrations.
