Residents of the area say they do not understand why the MP's station was attacked out of the many stations in the town.

The MP Kwame Gakpey speaking to Joy News said all he wants now is police protection at his home and other properties he has because he doesn't know their next move.

"The Keta Divisional Police Command says they will provide security for me when I am in the Constituency but as at now, I am managing my own security. The rate at which things are going I will appeal to the police to help me because I don't know if this is politically motivated. There was the first attack on me so this is getting worse."
