ACCRA, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- Isolated and uncoordinated shootingincidents across Ghana have claimed innocent lives, stoking fearsthe West African country could be heading for bigger troubles.
While some of these shootings are purely accidental, others havecome from armed robbers and serial killers who have shot and maimedor killed their victims.
A recent incident was between Richard Yaw Boadi Cowboys Jourdan Lewis Jersey , a 32-year-oldmechanic and Nana Frimpong in front of a garage at Alajo, a suburbof Accra.
Frimpong, who had apparently obstructed vehicle movements at agarage, had been asked by Boadi to park properly to make room forother vehicles.
However, Frimpong refused and fired a gun that hit Boadi in thestomach. Boadi died two days later after being hospitalized.
The number of such incidents is increasing and causing headachesfor the country's Small Arms Commission that has sought to controlthe proliferation of small arms in the hands of individuals.
Programs Director at the Commission, Johnson Asante Twum Cowboys Chidobe Awuzie Jersey , whilecommenting on the issue, explained that individuals needed to gothrough "a certain regime that will tell him or her when and how touse that weapon."
"As it is now, if they just check your background and you passper whatever criteria that you don't have any history of violence,not a temperamental person and all that, the police will have noreason to deny you," He told local radio network Cowboys Taco Charlton Jersey , Joy FMrecently.
Twum insisted that further checks ought to be instituted toensure that individuals who applied for arms were screenedproperly.
He suggested that tighter measures be put in place to ensurethat illegal small arms are removed from the system, as they pose aserious threat to the security of the country.
Last year, before the general election on December 7, Ghanaintroduced tighter measures to check the proliferation of weaponsin the country.
The ministry of the Interior, in collaboration with the SmallArms Commission, offered amnesty to all people who want toregularize their ownership of small arms to voluntarily registertheir weapons.
Then Minister for the Interior Prosper Bani announced at a pressconference that after the 32-day amnesty period which began fromAugust 22 Cowboys Sean Lee Jersey , anyone found in possession of illicit weapon would facethe full rigors of the law.
In Ghana, it is unlawful to possess weapons without policelicense and offenders face a sentence of a minimum of 10 years. Butthe number of people in possession of small arms in the WestAfrican country is alarmingly high.
It is estimated that there are 2.3 million weapons in civilianhands in Ghana, among which only 1.2 million have beenregistered.
The number of illegal firearms in wrong hands means that forGhana's 27 million people, the ratio of illegal arms to thepopulation hits a worrisome 1:25.
The Ghanaian authorities last year burnt some 1,300 range ofillicit locally manufactured weapons seized across the country, aspart of activities to mark the United Nations International Day fordestruction of weapons.
Local media reported early this year the Chinese Ambassador toGhana Cowboys Cole Beasley Jersey , Sun Baohong, presented modern security equipment worth over280,000 U.S. dollars to Ghana's parliament. These comprise threeX-ray scanners, three sets of walk-through metal detectors, 100sets of hand held metal detectors, and a human body securitydetector.
Sun said the equipment was expected to enhance the securityfeatures of Ghana's legislature Cowboys Travis Frederick Jersey , obviously in the light of theincreasing threat of terrorism across the globe.
The Chinese donation has come at just the right time when thethreat of terrorism is said to be looming in Ghana, as indicated bywarnings by the Canadian, UK and U.S. embassies in Ghana.
Attacks by armed robbers and highwaymen and acts of serialkillings in Ghana's recent history must be a wake-up call togovernment to step up its fight against small arms in wrong hands.Enditem
