Hundreds of residents of a slum near the Redco Flats at Madina, in Accra, have been rendered homeless after a joint police and military demolishing exercise, Sunday.

Police say the slum is also a haven for criminals.

Director of Operations Chief Supt. Kwasi Fori, told Joy News the demolition was inevitable.
