An 18-year old farmer caught with two locally manufactured short guns and cartridges has been remanded in prison custody by a Kumasi Circuit Court.
Fatawu Ali has been charged with unlawful possession with firearms and ammunition and pleaded not guilty.
He was ordered to make his next appearance on Thursday, December 15.
Police Inspector Owusu Agyemang told the court, presided over by Mrs. Mary Nsenkyire, that the accused was arrested on November 08.
These were found concealed in a bag, he was traveling with on a mini-bus during a snap check mounted by the police on the Kumasi-Techiman road, at Namong near Abofour.
Also uncovered in his bag was a mask, he added.
The prosecution said Ali in his caution statement denied ownership of the guns, ammunition and mask.
