The Charismatic Bishop’s Conference of Ghana has called on the government to deploy the Ghana Armed Forces to wipe out the armed robbery in the country.

In a communiqué issued by the Conference, they questioned why the Ghana Armed Forces existed if it could not help curb robbery in the country.

“The Ghana Armed Forces exist to protect and defend the citizens of Ghana from aggression, from invasion, from attacks and from enemies,” said a communiqué from the Charismatic Bishop’s Conference, asking “If our nation cannot deal with armed robbery, how would we deal with the very serious threat of terrorism if it were to come to Ghana?”

“If armed  robbery is  not dealt  with,  the nation  will be  filled with armed individuals  and increasingly  become a  more dangerous  place to live in.” it added.

The group is, therefore, calling on president Akufo-Addo, and other security stakeholders to release helicopters, army vehicles, superior military equipment and highly trained officers of the “Ghana Armed Forces to be involved with wiping out armed robbery.”

The communiqué said after 60 years of independence, Ghana must return to the days when it was peaceful and recorded few crimes across the country.

The Ghana Charismatic Bishops’ Conference was founded by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills and is chaired by Bishop Kwame Yirenkyi Ampofo. It is made up of senior clergy who have been consecrated as Bishops.
