We reported earlier that the Obuasi Police Command has arrested the guys spotted in a viral video brandishing guns and warning Ghanaians.
Photos and videos of these guys flaunting side arms and pump-action gun went viral a couple of days ago.
Some persons alleged that they are the actual robbers that attacked the bullion van and murdered the police officer on escort duty.
But according to the young men, they’re not armed robbers as purported but illegal miners and the guns they brandished were weapons to protect themselves.
They were subsequently apprehended by the Obuasi Police and new development has it that the gang has been transferred to Ashanti Regional Police Command and charged with unlawful possession of firearms.
