The Suhum Police have opened an investigation into the Municipal Chief Executive of the area, Margaret Ansei aka Magoo for alleged kidnapping and detention of a New Patriotic Party (NPP) youth activist.
In a report by the Daily Guide, the NPP activist, Ametor Kwabena Akpagli reported to the Suhum Police that the MCE has paid some thugs in the area to kidnap him.
Supt Yahaya Munchiraru, a police commander in the area said the victim claimed he had been locked up in an engine room at the MCE's official residence for close to five hours.
Narrating how the kidnap went down, Ametor, who lives at Akorabo, said that he visited his sister and that as he was going back home, he saw one of the campaign vehicles of the MCE coming in his direction.
According to him, the car stopped close to him, and some NDC supporters alighted and began attacking him, tore his shirt apart and pushed him into the vehicle.
“They drove me straight to the MCE’s residence at Suhum and locked me up in an engine room for close to five hours after seizing my mobile phone,” he narrated.
According to Ametor's report, he was sent to the NDC MCE and question on who he would vote for in the December 7 general election. He said he was forced to say that he would vote for Magoo (MCE) and President John Mahama.
After the gruelling treatment at the MCE's apartment, Ametor was allegedly given a t-shirt bearing the NDC parliamentary candidate’s face and driven back to Akorabo where he was dropped off.
The bizarre experience reportedly left the staunch NPP supported very embarrassed and ashamed of himself.
