The Ghana Police Service has announced that it is putting in place urgent additional security measures in the Greater Accra Region as part of efforts to combat a seeming surge in robbery cases.

There have been reports of at least four broad daylight robberies in parts of the capital this week.

In one instance, the robbers opened fire, leaving a bystander with gunshot wounds.

The robbers in all the incidents made away with huge sums of money.

The brazen nature and style of operation have become a cause for concern for eyewitnesses.

Subsequently, in a statement, the police have asked the public to bear with the police concerning the scaled-up security measures to deal with this threat.

The Service also urged the public and corporate institutions intending to withdraw and deposit huge sums of money to exercise caution or contact the police for assistance for such transactions.

The police added that it has placed a financial reward of ¢50,000 on information that will lead to the arrest of the thugs.
