Thieves are to blame for the darkness on the streets of Tema and the Accra-Tema Motorway, Chief Superintendent Joseph Owusu Bempah (Odeneho 1), Tema Regional Commander for the Motor Traffic and Transport Division (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service, has said.
According to him, some miscreants have developed the penchant of stealing the street light bulbs and other wires connected to the street lights, thereby plunging the affected areas in darkness.
He told Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don) on the Ghana Yensom show on Accra 100.5FM on Tuesday 27 November 2018, that personnel of the MTTD are up against the miscreants in order to deal with the situation.
“Thieves have been stealing the street lights. That is why we sometimes have the problem of these lights going off on the streets,” he said.
He assured that: “We are however doing our best to the deal with these people.”
