Talensi by-election: AK-47 rifle, other weapons intercepted

Rifle AK 47 New

The Police in Talensi have reportedly intercepted an AK-47 rifle, a pistol, dagger, axe and other dangerous weapons in the area.

The weapons were intercepted when the Police mounted a check point at Tongo, the capital of Talensi to conduct a random search of vehicles entering the Town.
According to Citi News’ Karim Natogmah, the AK-47 was retrieved from a Toyota Tundra vehicle with registration number UE 16-13 while the pistol, axe and seven machetes were retrieved from a Ford vehicle.
He reports that the vehicles and their owners have been arrested and detained at the Police station.
He said information available to him suggests that the occupants of the said vehicles in which the weapons were retrieved are not natives of Tongo.

Eligible voters in the Talensi Constituency are currently voting to select one from eight parliamentary candidates vying to represent the constituency in Parliament.
Incumbent MP for Talensi, Mr Robert Nachinab Doameng Mosore resigned to take up the position of a paramount chief of Tongo which compelled the Electoral Commission to set July 7, for a by-election in the area.
