Police in the three Northern Regions and Accra have begun investigations into separate cases of stealing at the National Disaster Management Organisation, (NADMO).
Bags of rice, roofing sheets and other relief items were said to have gone missing from the warehouses, since December last year.
Thefts at NADMO have been a recurrent phenomena and has denied needy members of society basic items like mattress and other food items during unforeseen disasters.
Even though some of the items have been received with the culprits arrested, Mr. Kofi Portuphy, the new NADMO boss, has lamented the slow pace of investigations and prosecution.
He told Joy News four people have been granted bail in Accra with several others in Tamale also on police inquiry bail.
He said “quite a number of the items have been retrieved in Tamale.”
