New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema East constituency, Nii Kwartei Titus Glover has called on the Police Service to step up their game in combating crime in societies across the country.

According to Hon. Titus Glover, the recent happenings of serial killing have taken a different trend, hence the need for the Police to adopt new strategies to address the issue.

Recently, the Manager of Ghanaian Musician, Kwaw Kesse, Fennec Okyere was murdered in cold blood by unknown assailant(s) at his residence on the Spintex Road.

His demise came as a shock to several Ghanaians and players in the entertainment industry.

Following the murder of Fennec Okyere, another business tycoon was reportedly shot dead in the late hours of the day. These murders have been linked to contract killing.

Speaking on U TV’s morning show “Adekye Nsroma”, Titus Glover noted with much seriousness the rate of killings in the nation and therefore appealed to the Security Services to endeavour to safeguard Ghanaians against any attempt by assailants.

He also advised the citizens to report any acts of threats to the Police Service before it escalates.

Also, touching on the same issue, the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ade Coker also urged the Security Agencies to install Close Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV) at vantage points across the country.

He added that it is about time the Security agencies employed this method which obviously, to him, will help nab the culprits and therefore serve as hard evidence to expose their wicked ways.
