The minister of lands and natural resources, Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh, has been involved in an accident, YEN.com.gh has learned.
He subsequently impounded the truck which smashed into his official vehicle as it was loaded with illegal lumber.
The incident occurred at Sunyani in the Bono region and it has since been reported to the police.
Per a report by Ghana Web, the accident occurred as the minister was returning from a trip in the region.
He chanced upon the truck, which has its registration number as AS4955E, heading from Dormaa to Yeji in the Bono East.
Cheremeh’s car was destroyed by the KIA driver when he attempted to stop him and enquire about the destination of the lumber.
Shedding light on the incident, Cheremeh noted that the documents covering the illegal lumber during the arrest were suspicious because the amount paid in VAT was higher than the actual cost of the lumber and therefore further investigations needed to be conducted.
According to him, the fight against illegal lumbering has compelled dealers to transport them through illegal routes but the authorities are on high alert.
