It will be recalled that in the run-up to the elections in October 2020, the NDC candidate Mr Ofori-Amoah was held by the Police in connection with an alleged plot to kill the incumbent MP.

The NDC candidate is alleged to have admitted to issuing cheques found on four persons the police describe as ‘suspicious characters’ arrested at a hotel in Swedru on Saturday.

He was been charged provisionally with preparation to commit murder and abetment to commit murder.

The Public Relations Officer of the Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Ms Irene Oppong briefing the press, said the police had picked the cheques belonging to Paul Amoah at the hotel where the suspects were picked up and invited him to assist in investigations.
