Aming’a is an AP officer stationed in Daadab
On Tuesday morning, a man sparked panic after being spotted carrying an AK47 assault rifle with magazine pouches strapped around his chest around Asmara, Pangani.
Police later arrested him following a tip-off by area residents who said the man looked suspicious and they feared he might cause mayhem in the neighborhood.
He was taken for questioning and they have now identified him as Ezekiel Aming’ a.
According to the police, the officer had left his rifle and ammunition in Pangani and was heading to Muthaiga to join his colleagues.
This move comes when the country is grappling with terror attacks from Al Shabaab militias and citizens are urged to be alert.
