The Ghana Armed Forces personnel at the Base Ammunition Depot in Michel Camp, have arrested a middle-aged man who was in the process of breaching the perimeter fence in order to gain entry into the Ammunition Depot.
The suspect, Yaw Boateng, claimed he was from Ashiaman Tulaku and was trying to access the Ammunition Depot to seek aluminium plated materials for sale.
Upon his arrest, 18 pieces of aluminium plates, iron pickets and a broken street light lamp holder were found among his possessions.
The GAF has handed him over to the Police CID for further action.
GAF cautioned the public that the Base Ammunition Depot is highly sensitive and restricted zone which is out of bounds to the general public.
“It is strongly advised that the public desist from tampering with the perimeter fence or attempting to gain any unathourised access, for their own safety and that of all others as there could be serious repercussions for such actions,” a statement from GAF said.
The GAF also cautioned intruders and encroachers of dire consequences for their actions if they fail to pay heed to the numerous public warnings and education on the need to stay clear off a high security zone such as an Ammunition Depot.
GAF request the cooperation and support of all stakeholders and the public in ensuring security and safety of all.
