A combined team of police and military personnel on Tuesday morning seized a registered AK47 rifle and a pistol, which were in a ford van headed for the Tonga electoral area, the capital of the Talensi Constituency, where a crucial by-election is underway.

Some 39,523 registered voters in the Talensi Constituency of the Upper East Region, started voting at 7:00am Tuesday, to elect a new Member of Parliament, after their MP abdicated his seat  to become a traditional ruler.

The seat, being contested by the two main political parties who have vowed to defeat each other has heightened tension.

Eight political parties have been cleared to contest in the Talensi constituency by-election.

At the Wunkogo Christ the King Primary School polling station, a ford van with the two registered weapons and six machetes was stopped by the police which has mounted a checkpoint to search all vehicles and its occupants entering the Tongo electoral area, the constituency capital.

However, the licensed guns have been seized together with the machetes.
