A male suspect arrested for brandishing a pump-action gun in a viral video on social media will today, Wednesday, be brought before the Court of Law.

Nii Ponponsuo in the viral video was seen loading cartridges into the pump-action gun and making threatening utterances.

He was arrested on November 22, 2021, after the Police Intelligence Directorate conducted a special exercise leading to his arrest.

“The Police, after reviewing the video conducted a special exercise that led to the suspect’s arrest from his hideout. A search conducted led to the retrieval of one pump-action gun,” the Police Service in a Facebook post indicated.

Meanwhile, the Service has once again cautioned the general public to desist from displaying weapons and issuing threats on social media as such actions are unlawful.

Individuals found culpable of such acts the Police said “will be dealt with according to the law.”
