By Alex Yomah
Sinoe County District 2 Representative, Samson Wiah, says he is troubled by the upsurge of lawlessness in the county, thus causing citizens including investors to live in fear.

“My people are peaceful but very vulnerable now due to the lack of State security’s presence and I am really worried,” he pointed out.

The lawmaker is however calling on authority to immediately consider his plight as a matter of urgency and to swiftly address the security situation in the county.
The lawmaker particularly emphasized that the Executive through the Police Inspector General, Patrick Sudue, should see the need to provide manpower mainly trained police officers in his district in order to help remedy the worrisome situation.
He then encouraged his people to always be law abiding other than engaging into violence which is not the best way out for maintaining and sustaining the peace process of the country.
