Some supporters of the opposition New Patriotic Party have besieged the premises of the Adum Police station in Kumasi demanding the immediate release of their regional chairman popularly known as Chairman Wontumi.
Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, reported himself to the Police today after he was declared wanted for assaulting the NPP MP for Manhyia North Collins Owusu Amankwa and the constituency Secretary of the area, Felix Ibrahim. The confusion between them was triggered by a disagreement over the ongoing Limited Voters registration exercise. He is currently being detained at the Central Police station.
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.
