Collins Dauda charged for abetment

Former Minister for Lands and Natural Resources Alhaji Collins Dauda, has been charged with abetment of crime.

General Secretary of National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu disclosed this to reporters yesterday.

Mr Nketia said he accompanied the Member of Parliament (MP)  for Asutifi South on Tuesday, September 25, 2018  to the Police Headquarters where they were kept for more than three hours before he was charged and later granted bail.

According to him, the manner in which armed policemen, he believed are members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group, Delta Forces, stormed the Accra and Ahafo homes of the former Minister, leaves much to be desired.

On Tuesday dawn, some police officers stormed the residence of the Asutifi South MP both at the constituency and in Accra to arrest him.

The officers claimed they had order from above but Collins Dauda was not home when the incident occurred.

The NDC General Secretary said after waiting for long hours at the police headquarters, the MP was charged with abetment of assault.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service has maintained that its personnel adopted lawful procedure in inviting MP for Asutifi South, to the police headquarters for questioning.

This is contrary to claims by the Minority in Parliament that the police did not follow due process in inviting the MP for questioning.

The speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Oquaye and the Minority described as unacceptable the attempted arrest of the Asutifi South MP after armed police men allegedly invaded his residences.
