Police stormed Sosu's church

A report on Ghanaweb indicated that personnel from the Ghana Police Service stormed the church premises of Madina lawmaker, Francis-Xavier Kojo Sosu, to arrest him over his protest on Monday, October 25.

Sosu, a lawyer and Member of Parliament for Madina, led the youth to protest deplorable roads in his constituency.

During the demonstration on Monday, the police attempted to arrest the lawmaker for what they described as an unlawful protest.

The police were, however, resisted by the youth while the MP fled from the scene.

The release from the police has drawn a lot of reactions. Below are some of the reactions;

Onasis Kobby said;

Point 6 clearly depicts the insanity with this process

Yakubu Abukari Saddique said those unauthorised people should have been arrested.

You should have arrested those people who went there unauthorized to arrest him. You cannot enforce the law by employing lawless strategies.

Francis Sitsofe Agorsor said the fifth and sixth point was very interesting.

I find point 5 and 6 very interesting. You clearly deny dispatching police to the church premises but admit law enforcers were on the premises in point 6, but cannot tell their reason for being there.

Derick Nana Amoako had this to say;

It is a right of every citizen to do demonstrations. Remember is our right to demonstrate but isn't a criminal act.

Countryman Eli said;

So u guys look Ghanaians in the face and put up this press release for us to believe you? You know the best thing was to write to parliament to invite him in person. This excuse is a nonstarter.
