The woman who poured hot palm nut soup on a police officer at Assin Dansame in the Assin North district of the Central region has reportedly been arrested.
The yet to be identified woman made headlines on Thursday, June 6, 2019, after news of her altercation with Superintendent Isaac Tetteh, who happens to be the Assin Praso police commander.
As earlier reported by YEN.com.gh, the commander and his team had visited the town to mediate a feud between residents of Assin Dansame and some community workers who had visited the town.
The police responded to a distress call by the chief of Dansame which indicated that some aggrieved youth wielding and brandishing machetes were causing mayhem over the Community Water and Sanitation Agency taking over the management of the town's water system.
While ensuring calm and arresting a suspect, the lady who was obstructing them from carrying out their lawful duty, poured the hot soup on the police officer.
According to information YEN.com.gh has gathered on social media, the woman was arrested in a car at the Assin Foso lorry station while trying to flee the area.
Since her reported arrest, a photo purported to be of her has popped up online and it is fast circulating on social media.
The lady is currently detained at the Praso Police station. She will be arraigned before the court on Monday according to the police.
