The Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Chief Inspector Ebenezer Tetteh told the Ghana News Agency that the police received intelligence information that the 60-seater vehicle was carrying ammunitions.

He said when the vehicle got to Fulfuso barrier at about 0400 hours, it was impounded by the police personnel after a search unveiled the ammunitions.
