Police in Bawku have intercepted two trucks carrying two thousand bags of government subsidised fertilizer they believe were being smuggled to neighboring Burkina Faso.

The trucks which took off from Tema were to offload in Tamale. But Police say when the trucks reached Tamale, documentations on the fertilizer were changed and the drivers instructed to continue to Bawku.

Bawku Police Commander ACP Kwaku Boadu Peprah told Joy News their investigations have revealed that the Bawku division of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA) had no idea about these fertilizers.

“It is the duty of MOFA to monitor the [movement] of the fertilizer, but this time round it wasn’t so”.

He said since the MOFA in the Bawku did not know about the truck loads of fertilizer, it is highly likely that the trucks were on their way to Burkina Faso.
