The Ashanti Regional Police Command of the Ghana Police Service has declared four members of the Bosome Freho District Assembly wanted in connection with rioting at Asiwa.
Police claim the four wanted Assembly members were allegedly involved in a riot that resulted in the destruction of some properties belonging to the Bosome Freho District Assembly.
The riots resulted from an Assembly meeting to pass a ‘no confidence vote’ against the Bosome Freho District Chief Executive (DCE). The meeting on Wednesday, July 13 turned chaotic.
Some heavily built men who are allegedly supporters of the DCE, Yaw Danso, reportedly stormed the ongoing meeting at the Assembly’s Conference Hall to communicate a court order to halt the process.
A viral video sighted by 3news.com captured some unknown persons throwing plastic chairs and smashing the glass windows.
3news.com is learning that the Assembly members are sharply divided over the current fate of Yaw Danso after he was accused of stifling development in the district.
A press release signed by the Public Affairs Officer of the Ashanti Regional Police Command, ASP Godwin Ahianyo, has advised the said wanted Assembly members to report with immediate effect to the regional police headquarters.
The four Assembly members who have been declared wanted are:
Mr. Amoako Mensah of Tebeso Electoral area
Mr Clemnt Osei of Freso/Korchrikrom electotal area
Mr Lot Adu Asare of Yapesah/Kokoben electoral area
Mr Maxwell Boachie Degraft of Dunkura Electora area
