Three branch Executive of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been arrested by the police after they were caught with registration forms meant for the ongoing voters’ registration exercise.
Luv News reports that the three were attempting to register applicants on the sidelines of the registration exercise at the Mamponghene registration centre at Akwatialine, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
Municipal Security Director, Alidu Seidu said the three are in police custody pending investigations and further processing for court.
He admonished the youth to desist from being used by the politicians.
Meanwhile, the NDC’s Communications Director for Asawase, Yakubu Tony Aidoo who confirmed the three suspects are branch executives of the party, however, said the party has no hand in the incident and knows nothing about how the three came by the forms.
“I was informed about the arrest yesterday [Tuesday]…whoever sees a document of such nature among any of our agents should get them arrested.
“We [NDC] are on a clean sheet as far as this matter is concerned,” he added.
He alleged, however, that their opponents, the governing NPP masterminded the act.
