Impounded rosewoods released
The Northern Regional Police Command has released the impounded rosewoods.
It would be recalled that three trucks carrying the rosewoods were impounded by the police in the region.
Police intercepted three trucks loaded with rosewoods from Tumu heading to Tema in Accra.
Ednak Company Limited, 3EL Construction Limited and Salley Delwinde Company Limited are said to be the owners of the rosewoods.
The trucks were escorted to the regional police command for further investigations.
The Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Mohammed Yussif Tanko, who confirmed the incident to DGN Online, said the police invited the Forestry Commission to inspect the rosewoods.
According to DSP Tanko, the Forestry Commission cleared the rosewoods as legal and so the police command requested for a formal written document to that effect.
He indicated that the three trucks have since been handed over to the owners.
