Five persons have been arrested by the Police for their involvement in the attack on the Upper West Regional office of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO).
An irate youth, reportedly linked to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), created a scene at the Upper West office of NADMO on Wednesday, January, 31, 2018.
The group, numbering about 30, stormed the offices to chase out the NADMO Regional Director, Isaac Seidu, who had to run to escape their venom.
However, the irate NPP youth laid hands on his personal aide and beat him to a pulp, leading to him being rushed to the hospital.
The perpetrators were initially shielded by the Upper West Regional Minister, Alhassan Suleiman, who prevented the Police from arresting them.
In a fresh development, though, five of the persons who masterminded the attack have been grabbed by the Upper West Regional Police Command.
Citi news reports that the five were personally sent to the Police station by the Regional Minister, who has since been asked to resign following a communique from President Akufo-Addo.
The arrested suspects are Bongaawmini Issahaku, Abdullah Hakim, Nuhu Suglo,Seidu Salifu and Osman Kamal, who is reported to be the leader of the group.
The Upper West Regional Crime Officer, Superintendent Huseini Musah Awinaaba said the suspects are currently being kept in cells.
He further stated that the Police is still on the search for the other perpetrators.
