“Shortly before the celebrations, the State Police Command, Joint Task Force, the Army, Navy, Air Force, DSS, Civil Defence and the State’s Special Security Task Force tagged ÖPERATION DOO AKPO”  reached a consensus to work round the clock to nip all criminal activities in the bud as they have jointly done every year since commencement of the Henry Seriake Dickson Administration.
