Heavily loaded stolen Kia Truck has crushed into Land Minister’s car today January 6th, resulting in it being impounded.

The minister of lands and natural resources who was returning from a trip chanced upon the truck with registration number ‘AS 4955E’ loaded with the illegal lumber and was heading from Dormaa to Yeji in the Bono East.

The minister tried to stop the truck but the driver ignored the signal and smashed and destroyed the Lands Minister’s car instead. Mr. Asomah Cheremeh had wanted to inquire about the destination of the lumber.

The driver was later apprehended by some good citizens who chased after the vehicle.
Addressing the media at a press conference organized on Sunday in Sunyani, Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh said when the driver was arrested, they suspected that there was something fishy with the documents covering the lumber. Carefully examining the documents, it was realized that the amount paid in VAT was higher than the actual cost of the lumber, which further raised their suspicion and therefore referred the case to the appropriate authorities for further investigations.
