Police are investigating the disappearance of nine 20-footer containers which were impounded at the Tema Port last week.

The containers carried scrap metals meant for export in defiance of an existing ban.

Public Relations Officer of the Tema Police Command Chief Inspector Olivia Turkson tells Joy News efforts are being made to trace the whereabouts of the containers.

She said the suspects were a 29-year-old Indian and a 30-year-old Ghanaian, Kwaku Asare.

According to her, a CEPS official in January this year lodged a complaint with the police regarding a declaration form presented by Kwaku Asare for the release of the nine containers.

She said although the declaration claimed that the containers contained logs, checks revealed they were filled with scrap materials.

The police PRO said the two will be charged with conspiracy to commit crime.
