Akontombra DCE Arrested By Police
The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Akontombra in the Western North Region, Yawson Amoah has been arrested by the police. Mr. Amoah was picked up over his alleged role in the kidnapping of a former DCE for the area, Appiah Kubi Baidoo. The Police say the official vehicle of DCE was used for the kidnapping operations.
Though it’s unclear too what might have triggered this, the Police suspect disagreements over the NPP polling station elections also in the Akontombra constituency. Western North Regional Police Commander, The DCOP Ernest Akresi Mensah who confirmed the arrest to the media said investigations are ongoing. The former DCE
was kidnapped by unknown persons, but the good news is that we know that, the vehicle of the current DCE was used. So, as I speak, we have invited the DCE, took his statement and granted him bail yesterday. He claimed he is innocent. Meanwhile, vehicle used for operation has been confiscated at the Regional Headquarters of the Ghana Police Service at Sefwi Wiawso.
