The NDC minority in Parliament has served notice it will summon the IGP, James Oppong-Boanuh, before the House to address the nation on how it intends to deal with the recent wave of armed robbery attacks.

This demand comes on the back of series of armed robbery attacks recorded in the last few days including attack on the Asokore Mampong MCE, Alidu Siedu, who was robbed at gunpoint.

Tomato traders and transporters have also, since last month, been persistently attacked by highway robbers. Most of them ply the Kumasi-Bolgatanga-Burkina Faso highway. In the Eastern region, armed robbers shot and killed an EMT officer who was conveying a pregnant woman and a paramedic to the Eastern Regional Hospital.

As an immediate response, the IGP has dispatched police and military personnel on the Tamale-Bolgatanga highway.

Meanwhile, former Minority spokesperson on Defence and the Interior James Agalga has warned that citizens may resort to what he called self-help if the Police fail to deal with the situation.
