- Police officials have discovered a cache of weapons at Alavanyo in the Volta Region
- They are however unable to take possession of the weapons due to the defences put up by the residents of Alavanyo
- Alavanyo is reportedly the leading manufacturer of guns in West Africa
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that police officials have discovered a gun manufacturing base in the Volta Region.
3news.com reports that they are however hesitant to move in as a result of the nature of the defences put up by those behind the act.
Police sources claim that Alavanyo, which has a protracted land conflict with Nkonya, has become the leading manufacturer of guns in West Africa.
“As we speak, there are people who go on duty at Alavanyo to guard the manufacturing base,” Volta Regional police commander, Doku revealed.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that two people lost their lives during a conflict between military men and the people of Alavanyo.
“As weapons are being imported into Alavanayo, they themselves are manufacturing weapons,” Doku said, noting that they have currently identified a place where over 70 AK47 assault rifles are being stashed.
He however added that the chiefs in such places often claim that there are no such guns in their villages.
He advised the media to treat what the people say about arms and ammunition with the contempt it deserves, and rather believe what the police say.
