Some angry youth in Sawla in the Sawla-tuna-Kalba district of the Northern region have attacked the police station in the area following the arrest of a local executive of the ruling New Patriotic Party who was kept in custody following a confrontation with an officer over a woman.
The arrested local executive is said to have launched an attack on the police officer for allegedly having an affair with his wife.
According to the youth, the NPP constituency youth organizer, Adamu Sakara, caught the police officer whose name was only given as Ocloo Labister sleeping with his married wife Wednesday afternoon.
They alleged that the wife who also works as Community Police at Sawla police station has been dating Ocloo for a very long time.
The irate youth in the district were of the view that, it was in its place that, Adamu Sakara assaulted the policeman, and the police officer had no right to arrest him.
Reporting on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5 today (Thursday), Northern Regional Correspondent, Prince Kwame Tamakloe said, at the Sawla Police Command, the irate youth invaded the premises with cutlasses and other harmful objects and broke all louvre blades and doors.
Without bail by the police, these youth set the NPP Youth Organizer free, he added.
The youth have also threatened that it would be bloody if the police arrest the Organizer again.
The Police in Sawla have since reported the case to the Northern Regional Police Command and have called for reinforcement.
