Thieves Raid NIA Office At Prampram
Suspected thieves have broken into the offices of the National Identification Authority (NIA) and the Birth and Deaths Registry at Prampram near Tema in the Greater Accra Region. The criminals also ransacked the offices located at the Town and Country Planning Department of the Ningo Prampram District Assembly (NiPA) and
made away with property belonging to aforementioned offices. Laptops, biometric machine, webcam, printers among others were stolen by the criminals. Confirming the incident, John Charway, an Opinion Leader in the area, said the incident occurred on the Sunday, February 6, 2022, dawn when the criminals also got access into
the offices through the windows. According to him, the criminals cut some of the iron roads in the windows and the net too to remove the louvre blades so that they can enter. Residents of the area were also wondering how the miscreants managed to rob the offices without a security man at post not having knowledge about the
incident. However, the security man manning over 25 offices belonging to four departments namely the Ningo Prampram court, Ghana Post, the Birth and Deaths and Development of Town and Country Planning have also reportedly expressed surprise about the incident. He wondered the time the incident occurred when he was
at post throughout the night of Saturday to the Sunday morning. Meanwhile, registrants have expressed fear of losing their data following the incident. They said some of them are also yet to receive their NIA cards too after registering, thereby stealing the machines means they are likely not to get the cards.
