The Government has confirmed the increased incidence of carjacking but says crime has generally reduced in the country.

Interior Minister, Martin Amidu said this when he took his turn at the meet the press series.

Mr. Amidu said the Interior Ministry remains committed to protecting life and property.

Over the last six months, there has been public outcry over the increasing incidence of car stealing and highway robbery.

Mr Amidu said though overall crime rates had dropped, cases of car stealing have gone up.

“Robbery statistics show significant decreases in most regions including Accra, Tema and Eastern Region,” he stated.

The minister however stressed that Ashanti, Northern and Upper West Regions recorded marginal increases in robberies.

He said despite these increases, “If you take the general trend in the country, there is a reduction in the commission of crimes.”
