The missing excavator was discovered several kilometers into a forest within the Ellembelle District by a team of operations and intelligence officers working day and night.
At the Axim Junction, while the police were escorting the excavator to Takoradi, the DCE of Ellembelle, Mr. Kwasi Bonzo, organized and led some thugs to attack the police and obstruct the operation. As a result, the DCE and three others were arrested.
