Ketu South: Municipal Security Council Bans Economic Activities on Denu-Tokor Lagoon
The release advised the public “to stay away from conducting any fishing or human activity in the lagoon until such is sanctioned by the Municipal Security Council".
The Ketu South Municipal Security Council (MUSEC) has placed a temporary ban on economic activities including fishing and other human activities in the Adafienu concession of the Denu-Torkor lagoon.
A press release signed by the Municipal Chief Executive, Maxwell Kofi Lugudor, said, the decision was arrived on at an emergency Security Council meeting on Tuesday, December 27, 2022.
“The ban has been necessitated by the recent drowning of a seventy-seven (77) year old woman, who preliminary investigations revealed drowned in the lagoon near Laklevikope. According to family sources, the woman in question has an underlying medical condition that causes her to leave home unannounced until a search is mounted for her,” the release said.
Further, it noted that “This situation continued until her lifeless body was found on the 26th of December 2022, in the lagoon near Laklevikope which lies outside the zone where the dykes were created by Seven Seas Salt Ltd.”
The release advised the public “to stay away from conducting any fishing or human activity in the lagoon until such is sanctioned by the Municipal Security Council”.
The release further warned that a joint security force would be on the hunt for any individual or group who would be caught violating this order.
