NCD Xmas ops a success

The National Capital District Christmas operations have been a success despite some hiccups.

Metropolitan Superintendent Commander Perou N’Dranou says cooperation from residents as well as social groups, like neighbourhood watch groups created by youths from the suburbs, have been major contributors to the success of the second phase of the police festive operations.

In a briefing yesterday, the Commander stated that he is pleased with the outcome of the operations.

He said this is just another phase that has been completed and the police now await the New Year, which they believe will be very challenging.

Meantime, N’Dranou reiterated that there were a good number of motor vehicle accidents that had been reported.

And in the last 24 hours, two major accidents were reported and traffic police are on these cases.

He said the accidents were caused mainly by intoxicated drivers.
