He revealed that several measures including the deployment of special anti-robbery squad to robbery-prone areas in Ghana, were taken to deal with the menace.
“Robberies in this country have been nipped in the bud, talking about the Bono East the northern corridor that leads to the five northern regions, and Afram Plains area where robbers attack market women and so forth.
