Police bust over 3000 stolen GHS insecticide treated nets

The Ashanti Region police intercepted about 3250 insecticide treated nets belonging to the Ghana Health Service (GHS) while they were being smuggled to Burkina Faso.

The nets were part of a consignment meant for free distribution to households to aid the fight against malaria, a report by myjoyonline.com said on Friday.

The nets were said to have been hidden in an apartment at Sabon-Zongo, a community in the region.

The report said the police acted upon a tip-off and  found the nets with 35-year old Sidibe Hussein, a Burkinabe, who was arrested.
