Mr Anang-La, during the retrieval exercise, commended the Police for doing a good job by apprehending the suspects and locating the stolen item.
He indicated that the Assembly was waiting for the Police to complete its investigations and advice the TMA on the steps to take.
He stressed that he would not protect anybody who engaged in criminal activities, that was why he handed over his aides to the Police.
The MCE advised the youth to avoid the company of bad people but rather report persons with criminal tendencies as according to him it was obvious that there were unknown persons behind the stealing of the excavator.
