Kumasi: Young men brandishing guns in viral video arrested
The Ashanti Regional Police Command has arrested three young men who were seen wielding guns in a viral video on social media and bragging about it.
According to the Police, the fourth suspect has escaped arrest but they are on a manhunt for him.
Addressing a press conference Deputy Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP David Agymang Adjem, disclosed that the Police retrieved the weapons including a pump-action gun as part of investigations.
“These young men have been variously described as robbers in both the print and radio, as well as on social media. These three men are in our custody in relation to the video and pictures we have seen. We have retrieved the pump-action gun, as you can see. There is a fourth suspect whom we are trying to also arrest.”
“We will keep them in custody as we investigate the issue. They have denied as you have seen in other videos that they are not criminals, and so the Command would like to appeal to anybody, for that matter the public, especially those who allege any criminal activity against these young men to come forward, give us information so that we can put them before the court.”
The suspects and another person currently on the run were seen in a video wielding guns and flaunting money.
