Criminologist and crime researcher, Dr. Jones Opoku Ware in an interview with an Accra based radio station says the crime rate in Kasoa is on a time-bomb waiting to explode.
Dr. Jones Opoku Ware outlined high population density and residential instability as some major factors of high crime rate in Kasoa.
According to Dr. Opoku Ware, Kasoa lies in between Greater Accra and Central where People in Greater Accra move in and out as well as people in Central Region also move in and out thus making it a perfect hide-out for criminals to operate.
He said he conducted a research on crimes involving murder, robbery and rape and out of the analysis, Kasoa recorded the “highest area with that kind of crime.”
Not only that, he further indicated that a lot of those crimes are not even recorded by the police.
He said the dynamics that operates in Kasoa must be monitored with the police and our security agencies taking a lot of precautionary measures.
