A joint military and police patrol at Lamashegu, a suburb of the Tamale Metropolis has led to the interception of a private car that contained 33 cartridges. The car, which was been driven by one Bombande Sulemana in the company of Zakaria Abdul-Halik, was stopped at a check point and during a check a bag containing the cartridges was found.

Mr. Ofuso Mensah-Geaybour, Northern Regional Police Commander, told newsmen on Friday that he suspected that the ammunition was being smuggled in to further arm factions involved in the recent conflict between NDC and NPP supporters in the metropolis. He appealed to the public not to politicize the work of the security services but to cooperate with security personnel deployed in the metropolis to ensure that law and order prevailed. Mr. Mensah Geyeabour said 18 suspects had been arrested in connection with the disturbances and charged with illegal possession of arms, rioting and causing damage. He said they have been remanded and would reappear on March 4.
