The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has been arrested this afternoon, according to reports.
According to sources, he was picked up in the afternoon of Tuesday, 11 June 2019 and subsequently rushed away to his house for a search.
The arrest is believed to be linked to kidnapping and arson cases over which the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) extended an invitation to the politician about a few weeks ago.
Already he is facing trial for allegedly inciting NDC party communicators to perpetrate violence against the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) and the National Peace Council (NPC).
He has been charged alongside the Deputy Communication Director of the NDC, with conspiracy to cause harm and assault on a public officer.
