The Kasoa District Police Command has given a two-week ultimatum to owners of over 120 accident vehicles parked at the district police headquarters and three police stations in the district to remove them in their own interest.
The new District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Jordan Quaye disclosed this in an interview with Ghana News Agency on Saturday.
According to DSP Quaye, after the ultimatum, which ends on March 31, 2009, the police would seek legal steps to auction them in order to decongest the affected police stations.
The District Police Commander said about 90 of the vehicles are at the District Police headquarters at Kasoa, while about ten are at the Awutu Beraku, Gomoa Nyanyano and Gomoa Budumburam police stations.
DSP Quaye said the vehicles have been left at the police stations between two and three years, creating congestion at the stations, especially at Kasoa, a situation he described as a hinder to police operations in the area.
He said owners are to contact the Station Officers or the Officer In-charge of the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) division of the Police Service at the affected Police Stations to arrange towing and collection of the vehicles to avoid losing them.
