Suspects who sent Prez & Six Others to Voodoo Shrine Granted Bail

By: KALD & Rita Nedjoh| Voltaonlinegh.com

The two persons who were arrested for attempting to cast a spell on President Akufo-Addo and six others at a shrine over the creation of the proposed Oti region have been granted bail.

The two, Ebenezer Atsu, 32 years and Shepherd Acolatse, 55 years were granted temporary freedom on Saturday after they were arrested last Wednesday at Wheta in the Ketu North municipality, where they sent a list of prominent government functionaries and individuals for a spiritual exercise to get them cancel the impending referendum on the proposed region.

On the list were names of the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa, Regional Reorganization minister, Dan Botwe, Chairman of the Commission of Inquiries, Justice Brobbey, Electoral Commission Chairperson, Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa, Asantehene Otumfuor Osei Tutu II and Dr. Obed Asamoah, a senior citizen and a proponent of the Oti region.

The Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Francis Doku who confirmed the release of the two suspects to Voltaonlinegh.com on Monday, earlier justified their arrest and said the police was duty bound to safeguard the security of the state, which could be breached by the actions of the two individuals.

Meanwhile, Reports of the arrest of the two persons generated a lot of comments and backlash for the police on social media with many, including a legal practitioner, Professor Kwaku Asare (Kweku Azar) who condemned the arrest, as the action of the two were not in contravention of the country’s criminal laws.
