An unidentified armed man was arrested at the Ringway Assemblies of God Church here on Sunday by National Security operatives, the Ministry of Communications said late Sunday.


President John Dramani Mahama and his wife, Lordina, as well as Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Woode are members of this church.

However, the statement said the First Family was not in church at the time of the incident.

?The National Security Secretariat has taken into custody a 36-year-old man who was arrested today with a weapon at the Ringway Gospel Centre branch of the Assemblies of God Church,? the statement issued by Dr. Edward Omane Boamah, Minister for Communications said.

The statement explained that the man was arrested after his fidgety and suspicious behavior attracted attention.
Personnel of the national security who were around during the morning service escorted him out of the church and a search conducted on him yielded a weapon, the statement said. Enditem
