Ultimatum to women frying yams at petrol stations 10/2/2007
Winneba (C/R) Oct. 1, GNA - The Winneba Police Command has given a forty-eight-hour ultimatum to women who fry food, fish and other edibles very close to fuel and gas filling stations in the Effutu-Awutu-Senya District to pull back 50 meters away to prevent fire outbreaks. The Winneba District Police Commander, ASP Jordan Quaye made this known in a statement issued at Winneba on Saturday.

According to the statement, it had been observed that some women fry turkey tails, fish, yams and other food items "too close to petrol and gas stations, a situation that posed dangers to life and property in those areas".

The statement appealed to filling station attendants to insist that motorists buying fuel at their stations switched off their engines to avoid disasters.

In a related development ASP Quaye has urged petrol and gas filling station managers to equip their premises with fire extinguishers to cater for emergencies.Source:
