The ammunitions, reports say, were transferred to the region via the Oti River.

He said investigations are ongoing and that "the police have also intensified patrols on all major highways and borders to ensure that people do not transport dangerous weapons into the region especially in the wake of the recent clashes at Nakpachei near Yendi."
