The Police have arrested one more suspect for the violent disturbances during the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Ashanti Regional Executives election held on Sunday at Kumasi.

The arrest of Bashiru Atta brings the total number of suspects made so far to four.

Earlier, the Police arrested three persons namely; Yahya Shaibu Tia, Fati Ibrahim and Husein Yakubu alias Jarlune to assist with investigations.

It would be recalled that during the elections on Sunday, some persons believed to be NDC thugs clashed with Police at the Regional Delegates Conference in the Ashanti Region.

The heavily built men who did not have accreditation were prevented from entering the Kumasi Sports Stadium where the elections were being held.

The young men, numbering about 30, were angered by a warning shot from the Police in an attempt to disperse the crowd.

This resulted in a free-for-all fight between them and the Police.

They pelted the Police with stones while the Police also resorted to the use of the butts of their rifles.

In the end, the Police had to leave the main entrance to restore calm.

Meanwhile, two of the suspects; Yahya Shaibu Tia and Fati Ibrahim were arraigned before the Atwima Akropong District Court on Monday.

According to the Police, “accused Yahya Shaibu Tia was remanded into Police custody to reappear before the court on November 21, 2022, while Fati Ibrahim was granted bail with three sureties.”
