Kumasi, May 7, GNA - Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Augustine Gyenning, Ashanti Regional Commander, has denied that the 51 short guns seized by the Police on a Metro Mass Transit (MMT) bus in Kumasi at the weekend were being smuggled to the Northern parts of the country.
He said that was never the case and there should therefore be no cause for alarm. These have been established to be muskets that were being carried to a funeral.
DCOP Gyenning, who displayed the guns at a press conference held the Regional Police Headquarters on Monday, said they could not be loaded with bullets except gunpowder.
They are therefore not offensive weapons. The Police Commander said all 16 people arrested in connection with the seizure of the guns have consequently been granted police enquiry bail.
They are to produce the license covering them. DCOP Gyenning asked the public to ignore speculations in sections of the media that the weapons were destined for the North to fuel conflicts.
