Mr Applerh stated that the marking exercise was the first of its kind in the West African sub-region and that Ghana was now a model in small arms inventory control in the region.

Ghana is currently among three other West African countries including Togo, Mali and Cote d’Ivoire to have started the weapon-marking project.

In 2012, the Regional Centre for Small Arms and Light Weapons (RECSA) based in Kenya presented two weapon-marking machines to Ghana during a three-day training programme for security personnel on weapon marking and record-keeping in Accra in a bid to eliminate the illicit trade and proliferation of small arms and weapons.

Mr Applerh said he was hopeful that the commission would get the needed support to move to the next stage of developing a comprehensive computerised (automated) record-keeping and data-management system to replace the manual (paper) record-keeping system which was laborious and unreliable for effective prosecution of small arms-related offences.

He envisaged that all legitimately held small arms and light weapons would ultimately be marked for easy identification, tracing and management.

The exercise which has begun in the Greater Accra Region will be replicated in the other regions across the country.
