Man apprehended for possession of unlicensed gun and ammunition

Central Provincial Police Commander Acting Superintendent Laimo Asi confirmed that the man is now detained in the cell awaiting court.

PPC Asi said the man was intercepted along the Hiritano Highway by the Doa Police personnel whist traveling in a vehicle. 

Police were quick to respond to the information provided by another police unit, stopped the vehicle, searched the suspect and discovered the shotgun and bullets.

When condemning the act, Asi said the use of guns had taken lives of many people and people who want to carry guns must have it licensed.
