The occupants of the truck, three Ghanaians and two Nigerians who have been arrested and currently in detention are assisting the police with further investigations. 

The Greater Accra Regional Police Commander DCOP Rose Bio Atinga at a press conference after the interception said upon the tipoff, “we quickly dispatched our policemen. We went and found the vehicle at the location, it was empty. 

“However, the policemen did due diligence, they entered the vehicle, inspected the vehicle and found that at the base of the vehicle there were some items which looked suspicious so they confronted the driver and he opened up the items. 

“To their dismay, they found arms and ammunitions stashed at the basement of the vehicle. We realized a huge quantity of AA and BB cartridges, and pump action guns and double barrel guns."
