Nigerien arrested for possession of 556 bags of government subsidized fertiliser in Kenyasi

The Kwabre Kenyasi Police in the Ashanti Region have arrested a Nigerien national found possessing bags of fertiliser suspected to be part of the ones subsidised by government.

Shaibu Adamu was arrested with 556 bags of the fertilisers at Abirem-Jamase near Kenyasi on Friday. He was however granted bail on the same day.

According to Police sources, Shaibu claimed to have taken delivery of the fertiliser from an unnamed man in exchange for lumber the man had failed to pay for.
