DCOP Ken Yeboah indicated that people who fail to return the unlicensed weapons would be charged and dealt with when apprehended.

He said, “I am using this opportunity to tell people using unlicensed weapons to return to the police because if you are found out you will be charged according to the laws of the country.”
