Re: NPP Asante Regional Organiser Arrested
The ruling New Patriotic Party's (NPP's) Asanti Regional Acting Organiser, Mr. Daniel Agyenim Boateng was reported to be arrested by Tafo Pankrono police in the Asante Region for allegedly for defrauding some individuals.
The Asanti Regional correspondent for Multimedia group who is also Luv FM's reporter, Erastus Asare Donkor reported on Joy FM afternoon news that Mr. Agyenim Boateng collected monies from some individuals with the promise to get them protocol entry into the Military and National Security.
The story with the headline; NPP Asanti Regional Organiser arrested was published by adomfmonline.com and myjoyonline.com respectively on Monday, October 4, 2017.
"The acting Ashanti Regional Organizer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been arrested.
According to reports, Daniel Boateng was picked up by Tafo Pankrono police for allegedly for defrauding some individuals.
Luv FM’s Erastus Asare Donkor who was the scene reported the suspect collect monies from some individuals with the promise to get them protocol entry into the military and National Security.
He indicated that the complainant who collected monies from seven individuals with each paying GHC 2000 but Boateng after several months didn’t fulfil his part of the bargain.
"As an immediate measure, the victim lodged a complaint at the police leading to his arrest.
Erastus Asare Donkor said the NPP acting Regional Organizer is currently writing his statement at the Tafo Pankrono Divisional Police Command", the journalist reported.
In a quick rejoinder, the office of the Asanti Regional Acting Organizer of New Patriotic Party issued on Monday, October 4, 2017 by Mr. Boateng's personal assistants, Mr. David Tabi and Asiedu Agyapong Bismark have called on the general public to rubbish the story as malicious, unfounded and urged to treat with contempt it deserves.
"For the records sake, we wish to state unequivocally that, the news item is a palpable lie, unfounded and mischievously motivated. Out of malice, the writer of the said publication even failed to acknowledge the basic fact that the NPP is a ruling party, not an opposition party".
They are therefore calling on Erastus Asare Donkor of Luv FM to retract the story on any medium where it has traveled so far and also render an unqualified apology to Mr. Daniel Agyenim Boateng within 24 hours or face their wrath and legal actions.
Meanwhile, this reporter, Daniel Kaku in a telephone interview with Mr. Agyenim Boateng, stated emphatically that he has neither been arrested nor invited by any police of defrauding people.
Below is the full statement;
