A 44-year-old man has been arrested for impersonation and unlawful possession of a firearm in the Ashanti region.
The suspect, Richard Nyantakyi, was arrested by the District Police Commander of Asokwa, Superintendent Christian Owusu Mpinim, on Saturday.
According to the police report, the District Commander was driving from Barekese to Abrepo when he spotted the suspect in a dress that looked like a Police uniform with a pump-action gun directing traffic at the Asuofua lorry station.
The suspect, when confronted, claimed to be a policeman stationed at Suame.
But upon further interrogation, including being asked to provide his service number, Mr Nyantakyi could not give it.
The suspect was subsequently detained, and the gun was retained for further action.
