Report reaching The Press Media News desknis that, the Inspector General of Police, David Asante Apeatu has ordered the arrest of Member of Parliament (MP) for Asutifi South Constituency, Collins Dauda.
The order was given on Monday night while Mr Dauda was on his way to Accra. Armed police picked Mr Dauda at 2am this dawn.
The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu confirmed the arrest.
He wondered on Accra-based Okay Fm they will give such an order when perpetrators of heinous crimes in the area are walking free.
“Armed policemen stormed there at 2am dawn to arrest him. He called the Regional Police Commander who also informed him that the IGP gave the order but he also indicated that parliament has been recalled and he was on his way to attend parliamentary proceedings”, he disclosed.
Mr Asiedu Nketia indicated that there was violence at the registration center for which reason the Inspector General of Police directed that he should be arrested.
“The Brong Ahafo Regional Police Commander has directed him to hand himself to the IGP when he arrives in Accra. The violence in the area is as a result of the NPP bussing non-indigenes to register in the area which has consistently been resisted by the NDC”, he explained.
“We sit in our region and they go and bus people to come and register under your jurisdiction. It started in 2008 and that is the underlining cause of the recurring violence with some persons taking advantage to engage in robbery”, he stressed.
