The Director of Communications of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has alleged that the anti-robbery unit of the Ghana Police Service has arrested about twenty (20) armed bandits belonging to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in connection with disturbances at a voter registration centre.

According to him, they were arrested at a registration centre in the Okaikoi North Constituency while they were publicly smoking marijuana behind the district court near the voters’ registration centre.

Adding that the Police retrieved items included live ammunition, cutlasses and other weapons.

“Earlier this morning, about twenty (20) armed bandits belonging to the ruling NPP were arrested at the registration centre in the Okaikoi North Constituency by the anti-robbery unit of the Ghana Police Service.” Sammy Gyamfi wrote on his X.

“Some of the items retrieved from these bandits included live ammunitions, cutlasses and other weapons. The thugs were arrested while they were publicly smoking marijuana behind the district court near the voters’ registration centre.” He added.

He also alleged that the same people who were arrested today attacked the office of the sitting MP, Hon. Theresa Awuni and inflicted serious injuries on some innocent voter registrants yesterday.

“Yesterday, these same NPP bandits attacked the office of the sitting MP, Hon. Theresa Awuni and inflicted serious injuries on some innocent voter registrants.” Sammy Gyamfi alleged.

He accused the Ghana Police Service of hiding the information from the public but they were quick to publish the arrest of National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Asutifi South, Collins Dauda for his involment of disturbances disturbances at a voter registration centre.

“Sources from the Police regional command have hinted us that some senior NPP officials are at the Police Station trying to secure bail for these hoodlums.  Some of the men arrested are on the police wanted list for offences ranging from robbery to murder.”

“Why has the Police Service not issued a statement on this incident like they did in the case of Hon. Collins Dauda? Is somebody planning to coverup this serious issue? Well, we are watching keenly to see how this issue will be handled.” He quizzed.
