A joint Immigration and Formed Police Unit personnel have arrested a man (name withheld) and retrieved 981 parcels of substances suspected to be marijuana at Liero, a community around Fielmuo in the Sissala West district.
The 981 parcels were sent to the Hamile Border Post for further investigation and action.
The joint team in a statement said the respective state security agencies would be invited to analyse the exhibits to ascertain the veracity of their deep suspicion on what the substance is actually.
In the meantime, frantic efforts are being made to apprehend persons connected to the ceased substance to aid in investigation and appropriate action.
The Hamile Border Post Commander, Chief Supt. Owusu Ansah indicated that whereas they appreciate the impeccable rapport with the locals, “we wish to respectfully inform the few unrepentant ones not to stand in our way.”
“They must either change or we change them, middle ground is not an option,” he added.
