Embattled Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako a.k.a Chairman Wontumi, has accused the Ashanti Regional Police Commander DCOP Kofi Boakye of being heavily compromised in the discharge of his duties and only doing the bidding of President John Mahama.
According to him, the commander who is widely seen as one of Ghana’s finest police officers has purposed in his heart and mind to only do things that will serve President Mahama’s interest in the upcoming general elections.
He however said the NPP will not sit aloof to allow that to happen in its stronghold.
Chairman wontumi has been trending in the media in the past week after he showed his thuggery best on May 1, when he slapped his fellow party member, Collins Owusu Amankwaa who’s the Member of Parliament for Manhyia North at a registration centre as he monitored the ongoing Limited Voters Registration exercise.
Following the disgraceful act, the police declared Chairman Wontumi wanted after which he turned himself in on Tuesday but was detained.
He was later arraigned before court on Wednesday May 4 on charges of an assault of a public officer. The Magistrate Court at Asokwa later granted him bail to the sum of GHC 20,000 and is scheduled to re-appear in court on June 1.
But speaking on Kasapa FM, Chairman Wontumi who described DCOP Kofi Boakye as an agent for President Mahama said the former acted and got him arrested on the orders of President Mahama.
“Kofi Boakye is an agent for Mahama, he has said he got me arrested based on orders from above. He himself is aware. He is being paid by the President and his brother to do such things. I don’t fear his causing my arrest; I maintain that he’s an agent for Mahama.”
Meanwhile, Kasapafmonline.com tried unsuccessfully to reach DCOP Kofi Boakye for his reaction.
