The Mpohor District Assembly in collaboration with the District Police Command have closed down a guest house at Wassa Manso, a farming community in the district for hosting Commercial sex workers and hard drug peddlers.
It is believed that the said guest house is for the assembly member for Manso electoral area Lawrence Wireko.
