Nine suspected drug dealers have been arrested at Achimota in Accra in a special police operation Wednesday.
The intelligence-led operation which was conducted at ‘Vegas Ghetto’ led to the retrieval of several parcels of wrapped white substances and dried leaves believed to be narcotic drugs.
A police statement Thursday said several other items were also retrieved from the suspects.
“The operation is part of the Police Administration’s resolve to weed out criminals from the Ghanaian society,” it explained.
It said such intelligence-led preventive policing and strategic operational exercises will continue, to ensure that law and order is achieved before, during and after this year’s general elections.
The police are thus encouraging the public to assist them with information on criminal activities.
