The Eastern Regional Police Command has recommended that the management of Tropo Farms, located at Mpakadan, put in place improved security measures to prevent future armed robbery attacks at the farm even as the command is on a hunt for robbers who attacked the facility.
According to a police situational report sighted by MyNewsGh.com, last Sunday, December 10, 2023, while a worker of the farm was transporting harvested fish on the Volta Lake to the farm’s depot, armed robbers attacked the boat on which he was cruising, overpowered the rider, tied him up and took away the boat loaded with fish. The helpless victim of the attack was later seen on an island and rescued.
Upon a visit to the farm by high-ranking officers of the Eastern Regional command on Monday, December 11, 2023, to assess the situation and interact with management, the command recommended that the farm implement more stringent security measures to forestall future attacks.
The command tasked the management to improve communication, monitoring and provision of security for its boats on the lake among others.
