Residents at Suame Post Office in the Ashanti region have decried the increasing rate of criminal activities in the area.
The residents some of whom have been attacked by armed men told Nyankonton Mu Nsem that, the situation has brought fear in the affected areas.
They told our news team that the armed men hide and pounce on their victims on their way from work and school.
According to them, some have been shot and others stabbed by their attackers.
They have therefore called on the police to intervene in order to protect lives and property.
A resident said, ‘’it is dangerous walking at night even at 8pm. If you are a worker and close at 8, then it means you will not be able to come home because the possibility of being attacked is high.’’
