Member of Parliament for the Asutifi South Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region, Collins Dauda says the police who visited his home at 2am to arrest him had intentions of killing him.
According to him, the mere fact that the 25 policemen detailed to his residence wielded heavy and sophisticated weapons and wore masks was a clear indication that their mission was not to arrest him, but to kill him.
Mr. Dauda who sounded the alarm in an interview on an Accra based radio station and monitored by BestNewsGH.com said the action of the police in visiting his home at the ungodly hour was most unprofessional.
‘’If they came solely with the intention to arrest me or for a different purpose I can’t tell. Because if the police comes to effect an arrest, they don’t cover their faces. Why must the police cover his face in order to arrest someone? Is it proper? Did they come there with good intentions to arrest? But it is only God who knows the actual reason why they came’’ he said.
The IGP earlier in the week ordered the arrest of Mr. Collins Dauda for some altercation between some persons affiliated to him and some members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) at a registration centre in the constituency during the limited voter registration exercise.
Mr. Dauda accused the police of being selective in their approach to the matter, explaining that the two parties should have been invited for questioning if the police wanted to take that line of action.
‘’If two people are involved in a fight, you invite the two parties to find out what really happened and the find ways of resolving it. But you don’t get fixated at one party and allow the other to walk about free as if he is above the law. That can’t be happening in Ghana’’ he argued.
