Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, would today, report himself to the headquarters of the regional Police Command to assist in investigations, newstube24.com has learnt.
Sources close to the regional Chairman, aka Wontumi, say the business man has taken the decision to avoid the wrath of the regional Police Commander, DCOP Nathan Kofi Boakye.
Chairman Wontumi after allegedly assaulting the NPP MP for Manhyia North and the constituency Secretary of the area, Felix Ibrahim went to his hideout at the outskirt of Kumasi to avoid any arrest.
Whilst there, Wontumi, according to sources received counseling from his lawyers as to how to address the problem he has created for himself.
The NPP Ashanti Regional Chairman was declared wanted by the Police and subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest after he refused to honour an invitation extended to him by the men and women in black uniform to assist in investigations.
This follows a complaint that was lodged against him by Collins Owusu Amankwa and Felix Ibrahim for assaulting them while observing the Limited Voter Registration exercise at a registration center named Nana Fodjour House in Krofrom in Kumasi last Sunday, May 1, 2016.
A statement issued, Monday, and signed by Asst/Superintendent of Police, Yusif Tanko, of Ashanti Regional Police Command said “Instructions have therefore been issued to the Regional CID to have Chairman Wontumi arrested to assist in investigations”.
The statement in part further read “However, it will be in his own interest to report to answer the offence of assault that was allegedly committed at Krofrom”.
Wontumi, this website is told, will report to the Police in the company of his lawyers
