The Ghana Police Service is hunting for a man who was found firing gunshots after the country entered 2022.
In a video that has since gone viral on social media, a young man is seen firing several rounds of gunshot.
He is then approached by a friend who hugs him and urges him to stop firing.
The Police Service says it has reviewed the video and that it goes contrary to the laws of the land.
“The Police have taken a serious stance against the actions of the young man since it is a crime to discharge a firearm in public without lawful and necessary occasion under Section 209 of the Criminal Offences Act 1960 (Act 29).”
The administration has therefore placed a bounty of GHC 5,000 for anyone who can provide information on who the individual is in order for him to be dealt with by the laws of the country.
“The Police Administration after reviewing the video footage has placed an amount of Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH₵ 5,000.00) as a bounty for anyone who can provide information leading to his arrest to face prosecution.”
