Founder of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings, is calling for calm following the arrest of deputy general secretary of the party, Koku Anyidohu.
Anyidohu was arrested after making some “treasonable” comments on Happy FM’s Epa Hoa Daben Show.
His arrest has seen the opposition NDC raise condition over power play by the government. So far, the deputy general secretary has been denied bail by the CID – a development which saw former president Mahama visit him at the police headquarters together with some top-level members of the party.
“Let’s all comport ourselves with maturity and cool-headedness and allow an investigative process devoid of emotions. The police must also be seen to enforce the law with a humane face devoid of excessive force. Let’s not become victims of a political-media circus. At the end of the day, whatever happens, must be based on the integrity of the truth,” Mr Rawlings tweeted on Wednesday night.
