Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Isaac Yaw Otabil, president of the Awutu-Bawjiase Youth Club, appealed to police officers in the town to exercise restraint, assuring them that leaders of the club would take up the issue with traditional authorities in the town to secure a lasting solution to it.

Mr. Otabil said the people of the town cannot afford to lose the law enforcing representatives in the area, adding that the presence of police personnel in the town has made a great impact in the control of crime wave in the area.
