We didn’t send officers to arrest Xavier-Sosu at his church – Ghana Police Service
The Ghana Police service has denied sending officers to arrest Honourable Francis Xavier-Sosu, Member of Parliament (MP) for Madina Constituency at his church.
News went round on Sunday afternoon that a number of police personnel had surrounded Mr. Sosu’s church, Believer’s House of Prayer Ministries, in an attempt to arrest him.
This news was confirmed by the Head Pastor of the church, Bishop Chris Ablordey.
But in a statement released on Sunday evening, the police administration indicated that the “Stories circulating that some Police personnel hade been dispatched to arrest the MP at a church today Sunday, October 31, 2021 are untrue”.
It says the Police Service commenced investigations into an alleged criminal act that occurred during a protest in the constituency led by Hon Xavier-Sosu on Monday 25th October, 2021.
“The MP, Hon. Francis Xavier-Sosu was invited on the day of the protest to assist the Police for his alleged involvement in the unlawful blockade of a road and the destruction of public property but he declined the invitation.”
“He declined further invitations citing parliamentary privilege.”
The statement adds that already, three persons have been interrogated on the matter and that every legal means will be used to “interrogate all other suspects” including the MP.
“Any plain-clothed Police personnel found on the premises of the church may have been there for intelligence purposes and not to effect an arrest”, it indicated.
“The police administration will continue to conduct investigations into this matter and we urge the public to continue to support us as we maintain law and order”.
