Residents of Lashibi, a suburb of Anloga in the newly created Anloga District of the Volta Region of Ghana were fear stricken when armed military men stormed the area on Saturday, 31st October, 2020.
Sources close to rymcitigh.com revealed that the exercise was carried out in response to incessant calls made by the people of the area to disband marijuana cartels being operated in the area.
Eye witnesses also revealed that upon seeing the heavy security presence at the areas in question , the drug addicts and the wee smokers who have been patronizing the product took to their heels. This created a lot of pandemonium in the area. About six wee kingpins (names withheld) were arrested during the swoop.
The team also used the opportunity to swoop in on other popular wee selling joints in town. Sacks full of substances suspected to be cannabis were also retrieved from them. Calm has however returned to the town and residents are seen going about their daily activities as though nothing ever happened.
Well-meaning members of the society have applauded the military for this effort of trying to clean the system. Sources say that the swoop will be replicated in surrounding towns.
