Police wait on HB meet

NCD police are adamant to establish a presence in Hanuabada.

The NCD Metropolitan police commander, Perou N’Dranou says pending the outcome of a joint consultative meeting that the elders will have with the community, there is a real big need for police to go back into the big village.

To date N’Dranou notes that there are reports of major drug, homebrew and stolen vehicle activities in the village, a situation that he says has gotten out of hand since the ‘2015 police pull out’.

The Met Supt added that despite the conflict bought on from tensions in the village after the HB shooting, the village still comes under the precinct and needs to come under the operations of his personnel.

The meeting set for this week, will be headed by concerned magistrates and community leaders to rally up the villagers to allow the police to come back and hold operations in the village.
