Former President John Mahama has condemned the spate of robberies on the Tamale-Buipe highway, calling for improved security in the country.
His comment comes on the back of a robbery attack on the Tamale-Buipe road over the weekend that led to the killing of UK journalist.
Mr Mahama says the heightening insecurity in the country leaves much to be desired.
“It is truly ironic that a journalist working on a documentary on peace and security should die from an incident of highway robbery, which has become symptomatic of the violent crime currently consuming our country.”
He made these comments in a statement signed by his Special Aide, Joyce Bawa on August 29,
The statement recalled that safety and security was one of the issues highlighted during his just-ended tour of the five regions of the north to appreciate stakeholders in their support during the 2020 elections.
