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.

On Thursday, March 19, 2020, a similar incident happened at Obeyemi Community near Oterkpolu in the Yilo Krobo Municipality. A 35-year-old man – Stephen Tetteh, was arrested for storming a registration centre firing warning shots in an attempt to halt the exercise.
