A 50-year old farmer in the Northern Region Soodin Konlan is in the grips of the police for possessing four boxes of AAA ammunition.
The ammunition which were concealed in a mini Tata bus with registration number UE 1162 C traveling from Kumasi to the Northern region on the Kintampo-Tamale Highway were intercepted by the patrol Police.
“Konlan is not an armed robber but he is someone who trades or was transporting 800 pieces of AAA ammunition which was concealed in a minibus which was heading towards the Northern region. Due to the efforts that our highway patrol team is making to prevent crime on the road, it led to the arrest of this owner of the ammunition,” Regional Police Commander ASP Tawiah said.
The arrest follows fears of insecurity especially as the general elections draws near. Meanwhile the police has made known its resolve to investigate the matter.
