District Chief Executive (DCE) of Ellembelle, Mr. Kwasi Bonzo of Ellembelle and three others have been arrested.
The Ghana Police Service through days of intelligence operations on 6th September, 2022 retrieved one of the excavators that was reported missing from Ellembelle.
A team of operations and intelligence officers working day and night discovered the missing excavator several kilometres into a forest within the Ellembelle District.
While the team of police officers were escorting the excavator to Takoradi, at the Axim Junction, the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Ellembelle, Mr. Kwasi Bonzo organised and led some thugs to attack the police and obstruct the operation.
The DCE and three others were therefore arrested accordingly.
Investigation continues to recover the other excavator and arrest all those behind it to face justice.
