Detective Corporal Effah Okyere Williams has been interdicted by the Upper East Regional Police Command following reports that the detective, who works as an Arms and Ammunitions clerk “is strongly suspected to be selling and transferring arms” illegally.

This was contained in a press release signed and issued by Director-General of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, ACP David Eklu.

In a related development, the Upper East Regional Police Command has arrested two people for unlawful possession of fire arms and ammunition without lawful authority.

The suspects, Douglas Ayine Akologo, alias W/O and Mumuni Yakubu, alias Jacob, were arrested based on information police received that they were in possession of fire arms.

The police said they have retrieved a ‘Bruni’ pistol with two rounds of ammunition, together with 165 pieces of explosives from Douglas Ayine when they searched his residence. Further investigations are on-going to establish the extent of involvement of the Detective Corporal in the illegal sale and transfer of the arms.

According to the law enforcers, “Corporal Williams, who is currently in police custody, will be dealt with in accordance with the police internal disciplinary proceedings in addition to possible criminal prosecution after investigation.”
