Update: Nat’l Security investigates 36-yr-old gunman arrested at Mahama’s church

The National Security has launched immediate investigations into the circumstances that led to the arrest of a man with a fully loaded gun at the Ringway Gospel Centre branch of the Assemblies of God Church on Sunday, july 26.

The man, 36, was arrested after a tip-off from a female worshipper at the church, a church member told TV3 moments after the incident.

Confirming the incident on Sunday in a statement, the Minister of Communications, Dr Edward Kofi Omane Boamah, said the man was arrested “after his fidgety and suspicious behavior was noted during the morning service”.

He announced that “National Security investigations are ongoing”.

It is unclear what motive the man might have had in carrying a weapon to a church but most church members denied knowing him as a member.

Dr Boamah said that President Mahama and his family were not at church when the incident occurred but TV3’s sources said his children had been driven there by his official driver.

Aside the president, the head of the country’s judiciary, Chief Justice Theordora Wood, also fellowships at the church.
