A male suspect arrested for brandishing a pump-action gun in a viral video on social media will today, Wednesday, be brought before the Court of Law.

Nii Ponponsuo in the viral video was seen loading cartridges into the pump-action gun and making threatening utterances.

He was arrested on November 22, 2021, after the Police Intelligence Directorate conducted a special exercise leading to his arrest.

“The Police, after reviewing the video conducted a special exercise that led to the suspect’s arrest from his hideout. A search conducted led to the retrieval of one pump-action gun,” the Police Service in a Facebook post indicated.

Individuals found culpable of such acts the Police said “will be dealt with according to the law.”
