The illegal market leading into the Kennedy Estate in the National Capital District, an area that has seen an increase in reported crimes, was removed by a combined team from the NCDD Reservist Unit and the NCD Command recently.
This is part of the clean-up campaign been enforced and carried out by the National Capital District Metropolitan Superintendent Silva Sika and his men with the goal to make NCD a clean and crime-free city.
Met Supt Sika reported that the clean-up campaign has seen many physical changes throughout the city.
“Police will continue to remove illegal markets around the city because they are not only an eye sore but avenues for illegal activities, such as the sale and consumption of home brew, illicit drugs and petty crimes.”
Met Supt Sika also called on the public to respect the police officers by doing their business of selling their products only at designated market locations in the city.
“While I acknowledged that people are struggling to make ends meet in the city, the onus is on them to do their business in the right place at the right time.”
