Sunyani, Sept. 25, GNA – The Sankore Police in
the Asunafo South District of Brong-Ahafo has arrested two suspects believed to
be among some young men who disrupted the regional celebration of this year’s
International Peace Day on Friday.

The program, under the theme “The Right to
Peace-The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70” was organised by the
Regional Peace Council.

The suspects, Amos Asare, alias Anointing and
one Isaac allegedly stormed the ground on motorbikes and wielding machetes and
other offensive instruments threatened and frightened residents who had come to
participate in the programme.

Residents and Journalists at the scene fled
for their lives as the angry thugs scattered and destroyed some of the plastic
chairs arranged for the event.

Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong, the
Regional Police Public Relations Officer, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on
Monday in Sunyani, that the two were arrested on Saturday, September 22, 2018
from their hideout at Sankore.

He said they had been detained at the Goaso
Police Station in the Asunafo North Municipality and would be transferred to
the Regional Police Headquarters to be prosecuted.

Chief Inspector Oppong said the Police was
working vigorously to arrest all those who were involved in that disturbance
and appealed to landlords to expose known Sankore indigenes suspected to be
hooligans and had rented accommodation from them.

He observed that those criminals occasionally
vanished from their rented homes to Sankore to cause trouble in that area and
quickly return to hide in Sunyani.

Police patrol teams would continue to be in
the area to protect the residents to ensure lasting peace, Chief Inspector
Oppong added.
