The Police has arrested the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Akontombra in the Western North Region.
Mr. Yawson Amoah was arrested for his alleged role in the kidnapping of a former DCE for the area, Appiah Kubi Baidoo.
The Police has revealed that the official vehicle of the DCE was allegedly used for the kidnapping operations.
According to the Police, disagreements over the New Patriotic Party (NPP) polling station elections in the Akontombra constituency could have influenced the alleged kidnapping.
Western North Regional Police Commander, DCOP Ernest Akresi Mensah speaking on the issue disclosed that “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.”
