Ada Development Network condemns recent confusion between residents of Ada & Police

The Ada Development Network, has condemned in the strongest terms, what it describes as cowardly attacks and brutalities recorded in some communities between Wednesday October 20 and Friday October 22, 2021 in Ada.

About thirty-six persons including the Chief of Salom, Nene Dadebom Anim have been arrested following confusion at Sege over the operations of Electrochem Ghana Limited.

Police sources say the culprits were arrested for allegedly attacking three Police officers on patrol duty at the Electrochem Operations Area close to the community.

A statement by the Network said the disturbances have caused fear and panic which have disrupted the peace of the people of Ada and its environs.

The Network has therefore expressed its condolences to families of victims who died and got injured.

It also reaffirms that crime in any form or shape and its manifestation constitute one of the serious threats to peace and security and called on the Police to expedite action and hold perpetrators of these crimes to book.

The statement also called on the Paramount Chief, Nene Abram Kabu Akuaku and his Traditional Council to engage the community and other stakeholders to work together to bring an end to these frequent disturbances.

Meanwhile, about thirty-six persons including the Chief of Salom, Nene Dadebom Anim have been arrested following skirmishes at Sege over the operations of Electrochem Ghana Limited.

Police sources told GBC NEWS reporter Daniel Akpaloo Nyorngmor that the culprits were arrested for allegedly attacking three police officers on patrol duty at the Electrochem Operations Area close to the community.

The source said the three officers were overpowered by residents who seized their pump action gun including a box of ammunition and a police uniform.

The residents have however refuted the claims, accusing Electrochem Ghana Limited of deploying thugs to the area to assault residents and burn down their homes.

Reports say two persons were allegedly killed with others sustaining various degrees of injuries.

Some residents of Ada have for months been protesting against what they say is the forceful takeover of the Songhor lagoon by Electrochem Ghana Limited which is owned by business magnate Daniel Mac Caulley.
