A manhunt is underway by the Donkokrom Divisional Police Command in the Eastern region for the arrest of a hunter who stormed a registration centre for Ghana Card to fire a warning shot over delay in registration.
According to an eyewitness, the incident happened some few days ago at Takroatwene community also called Maame Krobo Junction around 4:00 pm bringing the exercise to a halt at the centre.
He said, the suspect who lives in Okyerekrom, a farming community near Fosu, was furious that the NIA officials were refusing to register him for his inability to produce the required documents requested although he had been in a queue since morning. According to the eyewitness, the suspect angrily rushed to his house to pull a single barrel gun, returned to the centre to fire warning shots and fled into the bush.
A source at Donkokrom Divisional Command told Starr News, Police officers from Tease were quickly dispatched to the scene, combed the area but couldn’t find the suspect but recovered a seal of the cartridge he fired.
He said the suspect has been declared wanted.
