The Police in Koforidua-Effiduase have arrested 35-year-old Kwesi Boadu for allegedly threatening to set ablaze the residence of Haruna Apaw-Wiredu, the NDC parliamentary candidate for New Juaben north constituency.

The suspect, who is believed to be a member of the NPP, together with some young men reportedly pelted the house with stones at Asokore-Zongo.

A police patrol team and some young men apprehended the suspect who hid in a nearby house after they got wind of police presence there.

The other suspects are at large.

Meanwhile, the Eastern regional police command is meeting with the NDC and NPP parliamentary candidates and a few of their followers at the police headquarters to find ways to deal with the issues that led to clashes at the weekend.
