Police Arrest NDC Parliamentary Candidate For Tema East constituency

 Allies of National Democratic Congress' (NDC) in the Tema East Constituency on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 embark on a demonstration in Tema Newtown against the arrest and detention of the Party's Tema East parliamentary candidate, Mr Isaac Ashai Odamtten. 

Mr Odamtten and nine others have been accused of six tallies of monetary misfortune to the Tema Metropolitan Assembly, among other charges,  allegedly committed during his tenure as the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Tema. 

The Tema East Constituency NDC candidate on Tuesday allowed bail in the amount of GH¢1 million. He was at this point to fulfill the bail conditions, prompting his confinement at the Tema Community 11 Police station. 

The development led to scores of NDC members converging at the Tema Community 11 police headquarters at about 11:00pm on Monday evening in dissent of Mr Odamtten's confinement and to request his quick delivery from police cells in the midst of the singing of the NDC party anthem.

A segment of the Youth in Tema Manhean likewise kept vigil on Monday night, blocking  the main road near the main station  and burning vehicle tyres in dissent against what they said was an 'unjust arrest and intimidation'. 

They were however dispersed at dawn on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 by a joint police and military team.
