NDC's Sinare In Prison Custody

Listen to article

Drama unfolded at an Accra Circuit Court, last Friday, July 9, when a former NDC MP for the Central Ayawaso Constituency, Alhaji Said Sinare resisted arrest after the court ordered that he be remanded in prison custody for two weeks. Alhaji Sinare was remanded, together with one Sydney Armah, an electoral officer, for conspiring to register 26 persons, during the recent countrywide registration exercise conducted by the Electoral Commission (EC).

The persistent resistance of Alhaji Said Sinare to an arrest after that order had been slapped on him, led to the mobilisation in of a few brawny policemen from the police Striking Force Unit in Accra, who arrived at the court premises within thirty minutes to finally move him away to prison.

As he cried on his way to the waiting Police Patrol car, he was overheard muttering “my neck O! my neck O!”.

Alhaji Sinare was not admitted into the James Fort Prison, because he said that he was indisposed. He was, therefore quickly moved to the Kotobabi Police Station from where he was taken to the Police Hospital.

He is currently being held in the hospital's Out Patients Department (OPD).
