A 15-year-old boy was arrested and detained at the Atimpoku Police station in the Eastern Region on Sunday evening for allegedly defacing the posters of President John Mahama.
The boy who was detained for a night and released late Monday afternoon around 3:00pm alleged that he was physically abused by Customs officials who arrested and later handed him over to the police.
According to a Myjoyonline.com report, the boy’s father, Mr Isaac Kwarteng said it had to take the intervention of the Assembly man of the area for the boy to be released from police custody.
Narrating his ordeal , the boy said the posters were on the walls near the Adomi Bridge and that it was already defaced before he and two of his friends decided to tear other parts of the poster.
According to him, he cried all night because he had no appetite for food.
“When they sent me into the cell they locked me up. I was in the cell alone. I cried all night,” he said
Ghana’s electoral laws state that “It is an offence to destroy, remove or disfigure campaign materials of other candidates or parties.”
The Assembly man who intervened confirmed the incident but refused to speak on the matter saying that it had already been resolved.
Sad Day As Ghanaians Bid Ebony Reigns Goodbye Forever
Today, March 24, 2018, will go down as one of the saddest days in the life of some Ghanaians, and the Ghana Music Industry.
The late Ebony Reigns will be laid to rest today at the Osu Cemetery after a funeral service to be held at the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
Ghanaians will miss the 20-year-old musician who took the music industry by storm within a spate of two years.
Her hit songs ‘Maame Hw3’, ‘Hustle’, ‘Sponsor’, and the many others are still enjoying massive airplay.
Despite all the controversies that surrounded her short but successful career, Ebony was focused, and never shifted from her career dream. Who would not miss Ebony?
She died painfully on February 8, 2018, on the Sunyani-Kumasi Highway in a gory accident which also claimed the lives of her bodyguard, and personal assitant.
Meanwhile, the bodyguard, Lance Corporal Vondee Francis Atsu, was buried yesterday, March 23, 2018 in Mafi Adidome, in the Volta Region.
Franky Kuri was buried earlier in March.
