The Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency, Francis-Xavier Sosu, escaped another arrest today [Sunday], October 31, 2021, at the Believers House of Prayer Ministries in Madina.
According to party supporters who massed up at the church, the security personnel surrounded the church in an attempt to arrest the lawyer while he was worshipping in the church on Sunday.
Speaking to Citi News, the Madina Constituency Secretary for NDC, Abdul Razak Husseine, said the MP was taken to an undisclosed location by the Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mabarak.
While leading a demonstration with some youth in his constituency last Monday, Francis-Xavier Sosu had to escape after police officers attempted to forcibly arrest him.
It is believed that the basis for his arrest was the fact that some demonstrating youth blocked some roads, which were later removed following the MP’s intervention.
The MP later filed a complaint against the police in parliament.
The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, referred the complaint against two police personnel to the Privileges Committee of Parliament.
The officers cited in Mr. Sosu’s complaint were ACP Isaac Kojo Asante, the Greater Accra Regional Operations Commander, and ACP Eric Winful, the Adenta Divisional Commander.
