Bernard Antwi Boasiako (alias Chairman Wuntumi), the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), has been declared wanted by the Ashanti Regional Police Command.
The police has issued a notice for the arrest for the NPP regional chairman following allegations that he assaulted the MP for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwa and the Constituency Secretary for Manhyia North, Felix Ibrahim at Krofrom, Kumasi.
According to reports, the alleged assault took place on the evening of May 1 at a registration centre in front of prospective voters who had queued to register in the ongoing limited voters’ registration exercise.
