My arrest & detention is populist, it will not scare me-Abronye
The Bono Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe alias Abronye DC, has described his arrest and prosecution as populist.
Speaking to journalists after meeting his bail conditions noted that no amount of populist incarceration will injunct me from voicing out or speaking my mind.”
According to him, he had some issues with the Inspector General of Police and in the coming days, he would disclose them.
“In the coming days, I will come out with some personal issues I have with the IGP,” he said to the press.
He posited that the police deliberately delayed the process so he could be detained.
“As for today, I’ll take the advice of my lawyers so that while going home, I’ll advise myself properly. I’m happy with the bail… As indicated by my lawyers, this is not an offence that they will deny me bail. That is why the court granted me bail. It was not like the police were searching for me. I personally went to the regional police head office yesterday. They deliberately delayed me in order to keep me in custody. As a politician, I’m not afraid of things like this. This will not distract or worry me,” he added.
