Some aggrieved persons identified as members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are reported to have stormed the New Abirem Police Station in the Eastern Region of Ghana to demand the release of the former Eastern region minister, Honorable Mavis Ama Frimpong, and four other members who they claim were illegally arrested over campaign posters under the guise that, they were removing posters of the NPP and were replacing them with those of the NDC presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama and the parliamentary candidate for the area.
Detailing the issue, Daniel Odzeyem, the NDC Constituency Secretary said;
“Our constituency Chairman asked our boys to paste posters of John Mahama and Our Parliamentary Candidate. So we were there when NPP Organizer called me on the phone that our boys were covering their posters with NDC Posters. So the Police Commander Superintendent Peter Ofori Donkor called us that the DCE for the area and NPP Secretary have lodged a complaint that they should arrest our boys so we said we will bring them for interrogation. After the interrogation, the CID in Charge decided to grant the four guys bail but the DCE for the area resisted granting of bail to the guys.”
