The police in the Northern Region of Ghana have seized a bus containing about 320 AK7 ammunition and two sets of magazines.
According to initial police report the bus was heading towards Kumasi from the Northern region. Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), ASP Ebenezer Tetteh told the media the bus was arrested upon a tip-off.
ASP Tetteh narrated to the media that when the driver of the bus was arrested and questioned, he revealed that the ammunitions was bought in Bawku.
“Upon interrogation, he [Sayibu Sandow – the driver of the bus] told us [police] that he bought the ammunitions from somebody in Bawku [in the Upper East region] some years back and that he was taking them to Kumasi to offer them for sale. So we took him to court and he has since been remanded,” ASP Tetteh told Accra-based Joy FM.
