NADMO co-coordinator warns hunters

Mr. Evans Osei-Worae, Nkoranza South District Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Organisation, has cautioned the youth in Zongo communities in Techiman Municipality against group hunting during the dry season. He said the district's anti-bushfire task force would be alert to thwart such activities and apprehend such persons and ensure they face the full rigours of the law. Mr. Osei-Worae told the Ghana News Agency that some youth in Techiman moved in cargo trucks to embark on hunting in some communities in Nkoranza District. He appealed to assembly members, unit committees and traditional authorities to be vigilant and to report the activities of group hunters to the task force. He advised fire volunteers to also monitor farmers, palm wine tapers and honey extractors to avoid the occurrence of bushfires so save the environment and people's properties from destruction. Mr. Osei-Worae stressed the need for law enforcing agencies to support the assembly to bring the annual bushfire menace in the area under control by dealing drastically with fire setters.
