Police arrest persons brandishing guns in a viral video

The Ashanti Regional Police Command has arrested three persons who were captured in a viral video brandishing guns on social media.

They were picked up to assist the police in investigations on how they acquired the firearms.

The three young men were arrested on Thursday at Gausu, a suburb of Obuasi in the Ashanti region after the Police mounted a search for them.

The suspects include Rev. Fred Akota, Emmanuel Akota, Richard Suleman, and one other at large.

According to the Deputy Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP David Adjem Agyemang, the police retrieved one pump action gun and 5 blank cartridges in the home of the suspects.

A recent viral video circulating on social media shows the four suspects displaying and boasting of their pistols and pump-action gun while threatening the public to run away.

The video emerged a few hours after a robbery attack on a bullion van that claimed the life of a young police officer and a trader at Jamestown in Accra.

Police have appealed to the general public to volunteer information to the command if they have any case against the suspects.
