The East Legon District Crime Officer, DSP Abena Benewaa Kwabena, has said that the Youth Chief of Wala in Accra, has in his custody thirty-seven spent gun shells.
She said this at the Emile Short Commission of Inquiry on the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence.
According to DSP Kwabena, when her station received word of the violence, she moved to the crime scene and retrieved two spent shells from two pupils whom she claimed attend the La Bawaleshie Presbyterian School.
She added that she received information through an interview in the media that some other spent shells were in the possession of the Youth Chief of Wala in Accra.
According to DSP Kwabena, she instructed an investigator to follow up and retrieve the shells.
However, the Youth Chief refused to hand over the shells because he claimed he needed them to establish a case.
She added that the Youth Chief only allowed the investigator to take pictures of the shells, and the total number of shells counted by the Youth Chief, in the presence of the investigator were thirty-seven.
According to the East Legon District Crime Officer, she had not tested or handed over the two shells she took from the pupils, to the Divisional Crime Officer who took over the case, because, she wanted to retrieve the other shells from the Youth Chief and have a comparative test conducted.
