The man, Adamu Sakara, the NPP Constituency Youth Organizer for the area, was arrested and detained for allegedly attacking Lance Corporal Ocloo for sleeping with his wife.

Mr Sakara who was said to have caught Lance Corporal Ocloo sleeping with his wife, who is also a community police officer allegedly attacked him at his residence.
