The Police at Wenchi in the Bono Region have arrested eight suspected Indian Hemp smokers and peddlers in a swoop conducted in the Municipality on Tuesday.

The Ghana News Agency (GNA) gathered the suspects, including a young lady, Nasiba Ubeida, 19 years, have since been placed in custody, as the Police continued with their investigations.

The other suspects are Abdul Nashiru 28, Adama Abu, 57, Mohammed Siaka, 43, Yerifa Joe, 36, Adams Tijani, 26, Moses Fii, 80 and Sule Sumaila, 29.

A source at the Wenchi Divisional Police Command that disclosed this in an interview with the GNA said the Police conducted the swoop around 1830 hours at the local popular “Kaamu ghetto”, arrested the suspects and set the ghetto ablaze.

The GNA learnt the ghetto remained a den for criminals who robbed and terrorized residents in the Municipality.

When contacted, the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Boakye Ansah, the Wenchi Divisional Police Commander confirmed but declined to comment further on the story.

He, however, asked the GNA to follow up the story at the Bono Regional Police Command.
