Some residents of Heriage Court of Devtraco Estate in The Tema Metropolis are leaving in perpetual fear following the barrage of armed robbery attacks within the community in spite of the tight security that surrounds them.
According to a resident and victim of robbery syndicate who spoke on behalf of his colleague residents, Ernest Hammond, the estate is a gated community, and residents are made to pay a monthly security fee of One Hundred and Fifteen Ghana Cedis, (GHC 115) as part of efforts to prevent thieves and unauthorized persons from entry.
Speaking to XYZ News’ Bennett Yaovi, he stressed that; The Estate Management has persistently glossed an eyes over the robbery, regardless of the numerous petition he has written to them.
He added that, even though a Police Station is situated close to the Community, he cannot fathom why these miscreants keeps tormenting their lives .
The disgruntled resident is further appealing to The Interior Ministry through The Inspector General of Police to investigate the matter and bring the perpetrators to book. Efforts to reach management on the issue, were unsuccessful.
