The Greater Accra Regional Police Commander, DCOP George Alex Mensah, has made a shocking suggesting about people who have fallen victims of criminal acts in Nkrumah Circle.

According to the police commander, persons who lose their electronic gadgets to thieves at the Kwame Nkrumah Cicle, in Accra are careless.

Nkrumah Circle, which is notoriously known for criminal activities has seen many fall victims to pickpockets who sometimes physically assault unsuspecting victims and make away with their phones and monies.

Speaking to Citi News’ Umaru Sanda Amadu on Point Blank on Eyewitness News, DCOP George Alex Mensah said most of the theft cases had something to do with carelessness on the part of the victims adding that the areas without lights were not safe and urged people to stay away from such spots.

But , ‘Circle’ as it’s popularly known “is not as dangerous as some people make it seem. If you go to Circle now you will see people talking on their phones. People are making you scared because anytime you open the radio, people who have not been to Circle for the past six months will call and paint a picture about Circle. The people whose phones were snatched at Circle were careless. The areas without lights are not safe place so it’s important for citizens to stay away from those places.”
