The Upper East Regional Minister has caused the arrest of former Upper East regional chairman of the party, late Adams Mahama’s brother.
Nuhu Mahama Akalbila was arrested by the police in the early hours of Saturday.
Though the reason behind his arrest is sketchy, he suspects the minister, Rockson Ayine Bukari, is only interested in abusing his office and pay back for disrespecting him when the party was in opposition.
Nuhu Mahama, while narrating the incident at the CID office, said he sent his contract certificates to the Regional Minister to be signed.
He added that without any provocation, the minister just got angry by his mere presence and started calling him all kinds of names, as he wondered what he did to warrant the arrest and humiliation from minister.
The Constituency Women’s organizer for Bolgatanga East of the NPP, Gifty Ntaaga who appeared incensed by the minister’s action joined hundreds of NPP sympathizers to storm the police station. She was furious about the leadership style of the regional minister, accusing him of disrespecting them and adopting divide and rule tactics in the region.
Meanwhile, Nuhu Mahama has been granted bail after several hours of interrogation by the police CID.
