Reports show that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Bosiako, has been arrested and currently behind bars after he voluntarily went to the police station upon being declared wanted.
The Police in the Ashanti Region said Mr Boasiako had since Sunday refused an invitation to appear before it to answer allegations of assault brought against him by two NPP members. Mr Boasiako at Krofom in Kumasi allegedly assaulted Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Amankwah, and the Constituency Secretary, Felix Ibrahim on Sunday. The two subsequently lodged a complaint with the Police who then invited Mr. Boasiako who is popularly referred to as Chairman Wontumi.
An invitation was thus issued to Mr Boasiako, the Police said in a statement issued and signed by ASP Yusif Tanko Monday, but did not state the form in which the invitation was issued and whether the suspect has since received it. The Police say it will “be in his own interest” to immediately report to the Police to answer the offence of assault he has allegedly committed against the two members of his party.
The opposition New Patriotic Party is yet to react to his arrest.
