According to reports, the reason for their arrest is yet to be given.
However, the Member of Parliament for Asawase, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak, told journalists that the armed officers raided the Aboabo Library upon a tipoff that a suspect they [police] were looking for was in the area.
He also expressed concern that this may be an attempt to intimidate members of the NDC.
“I have seen the boys. They are in high spirits. They will make their statements, and then we will see the way forward. The commander has assured us that it [the arrest] is not to intimidate us,” the MP said to the press.
“They have given us assurances that even though today is Sunday, they are taking their statements and those they believe are not part of those they are looking for, they will give them bail, and we will go,” Mr. Mubarak added.
The MP further assured that the police will be “given space to do their work.”
