The family of the the Ashanti regional minister, Andy Osei Okrah, was evacuated Tuesday morning after an "explosive device" was spotted near his home in Kumasi.
Security forces in Kumasi defused the bomb which was also found close to a national security data centre at Danyame in Kumasi, according to a report by Accra-based Joy FM.
Security officials cordoned off the area as investigations began into the development.
The development comes barely five weeks to the December 7 polls.
