DCOP Peterkin Yentumi Gyinae
Information reaching DAILY GUIDE indicates that the Volta Regional Police command has arrested two police officers for their alleged involvement in the drug trade in the region.
The two were arrested on Saturday for allegedly conveying substances suspected to be Indian hemp popularly known as wee in a police vehicle.
An eyewitness of the arrest which occurred at Sokode-Lokoe on the outskirts of Ho, the regional capital, said the two cops were stopped by their colleagues at the Sokode-Lokoe barrier. He added that there was a third culprit.
Another source close to the police hinted that the duo was first stopped by the highway patrol team between Have and Bame but refused to stop.
This, the eyewitness claimed, made the highway patrol team suspicious and decided to follow them. They then hinted other personnel at the Bame and the Sokode- Lokoe barriers. The two, who managed to flee from the Bame barrier, were then arrested at the Sokode Lokoe barrier.
DAILY GUIDE sources also revealed that the driver of the Indian hemp-filled police vehicle happens to be the driver of the Commanding Officer of the Volta Regional Police Training School.
When contacted, the Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Peterkin Yentumi Gyinae, confirmed that there had been such a bust. He then promised that he was gathering adequate information before meeting the media to brief them on the happening.
As at press time yesterday, the details were not yet ready.
