Police recovers 1 missing excavator, arrests Ellembelle DCE, 3 others for obstruction

The police found the excavator in the forest

The police has retrieved one of the excavators that went missing from Ellembelle.

A team of operations and intelligence officers found the missing excavator several kilometres in a forest within the Ellembelle district.

While the team of police officers was accompanying the relocation of the excavator to Takoradi, Mr Kwasi Bonzo, the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Ellembelle allegedly organised and led some thugs to attack the police and obstruct the operation at the Axim Junction.

The DCE and three others have, therefore, been arrested.

The police says it is continuing with investigations to recover the other excavator and arrest all the suspects involved.
