The Ghana Police Service has identified a number of areas where chaos is likely to erupt ahead of the December 7, elections.
The vicinities are categorised into key flashpoints with the Ashanti Region topping with the most districts prone to violence.
The National Commission on Small Arms and Light Weapons has already indicated the relevance of alertness in the country’s overall approach going into the election to ensure that acts of violence are reduced to the barest minimum.
They want these flashpoints to be adequately monitored as various political parties intensify their campaigns in a bid to secure victory in December presidential and parliamentary elections.
