Akyem Oda is one of the notorious areas in the Eastern region in terms of peddling of narcotic drugs.

Some efforts were made over the years which led to the arrest of some of the drug lords in 2016 but they were left off the hook after they allegedly bribed the then Divisional Police Commander Ebenezer Ampofo.

The Commander was interdicted but was later reinstated. The Police officer, Abu Isahaku, who made the arrest was transferred to a rural area in the Northern region for challenging the Divisional Commander over the release of the drug kingpins.

The canker has reportedly resurfaced strongly compelling the Oda Police to take radical action to nip it in the bud.
