40 Yr-Old Woman, Others Arrested For Trafficking Weapons


The Police at Kintampo in the Brong Ahafo region have arrested 3 persons including a 40 year old woman caught with weapons and rounds of ammunition at Potor, a town in the region.

The police made the arrest upon a tip-off on Friday.

Kintampo Divisional police commander Chief Superintendent Desmond Owusu Boampong told Adom News the suspects are still in their custody helping investigations.

He said the town has been faced with chieftaincy-related violence which led to the killing of one person during a gun battle between two fueding factions in May this year.

The police believe that the residents who fled the fighting are returning from the Northern Region with the guns and ammunition to renew the clashes.

Chief Superintendent Desmond Owusu Boampong said though calm has returned to the town, some police personnel have been deployed to avert any clash.
