Beef up security to stop sakawa practice – former Sakawa kingpin to gov’t

A former sakawa kingpin is charging authorities to as a matter of urgency beef up security in the country following the murder of a 10-year-old in Kasoa allegedly for money ritual.

Kofi Amoateng said the security agencies must up their game to end the increasing cyber fraud and money ritual in the country.

Speaking to Kwaku Owusu Adjei on National Interest, the anti-sakawa campaigner said the recent Kasoa ritual murder should serve as a wake-up call to the security agencies.

He also said prominent men should stop encouraging the youth to practice sakawa.

“It is shocking some primary 5 pupils refuse attending school and instead search for clients on their phones for some prominent men somewhere. Foreigners have dominated the country and are recruiting school children in their rooms to work for them. What’s happening in Ghana there’s only one solution it is security,” Abusua stated.

He added that “When the security service starts working when the Immigration starts going house to house”.

In his view, ending sakawa practice will be less difficult if the government determines to eradicate the practice which is leading to loss of lives and properties.

“It is not a big deal to end it but some leaders are behind the practice. They are profiting from it with the children. Two years ago, Donald Trump sent the FBI to Nigeria, they arrested several people. They seized properties,” he said.
