Police at Gambaga in the Northern region have intercepted a cache of weapons in a vehicle with six occupants.

The Nissan Patrol with registration number GE 5433-16 was heading to Namong village from Tamale.

A search in the car uncovered six pump action guns and 130 cartridges.

The suspects have been detained while the exhibits have been kept for evidential purpose.


It is unclear the motive behind the transit but it comes at a time the Konkambas have been agitating for the capital of the yet to be created district to be sited in Namong instead of Yunyoo.

A source close to the Northern Regional Security Council revealed that the suspects had targeted heightening the tension in the area ahead of the creation of the new Yunyoo district.

They have held more than three press conferences issuing threats. Three weeks ago, unknown gunmen went on shooting spree in the area.
