Seven suspects have been arrested by the Accra Regional Police Command for offensive conduct and obstructing the police in performing their duty.

The arrest follows an incident which occurred last Tuesday, 7 July 2020 at the E.P. Church voter registration centre in Accra New Town.

On the said day, two persons were arrested for brandishing machetes and engaging in acts likely to disrupt the exercise.

They were arrested by on-duty security personnel at the centre.

While the suspects were being sent to the police station, some sympathisers on a pickup truck crossed the police vehicle and forcibly took the two suspects away with impunity.

The two suspects were rearrested together with five other suspects.

They were processed for court on Friday, 10 July 2020.

They are to reappear today, Monday, 13 July 2020.
