Police arrest nine suspected drug dealers
A team of police officers have arrested nine drug dealers at the Achimota “Vegas Ghetto” in Accra during an intelligence-led operation on Wednesday.
The team retrieved items which included several parcels of wrapped white substances and dried leaves believed to be narcotic drugs.
The operation is part of the police administration’s resolve to weed out criminals from the Ghanaian society.
“Such intelligence-led preventive policing and strategic operational exercises will continue, to ensure that law and order is achieved before, during and after this year’s general elections,” a statement from the police said on Thursday.
The police have encouraged the general public to assist with information on such criminal activities.
