Minister of National Security, Albert Kan Dapaah says the perceived sense of increased insecurity in the country is a deliberate orchestration by political opponents of government.

According to him, statistics have shown that the crime rate has rather reduced but some politicians are bent on blowing every little occurrence out of proportion thereby creating a sense of insecurity.

Mr. Dapaah made the comment when he briefed Parliament on the state of security in the country ahead of the elections.

Mr. Dapaah disputed suggestions that the reported cases of crime, such as the kidnapping of the Takoradi girls and the blockage of roads by secessionists and murder of influential people are as a result of intelligence failure or incompetence.

The Minister outlined measures put in place to enhance national security. Among them is the installation of high tech hidden security cameras at vantage points throughout the country.
