I’m not above the law – Barker-Vormawor speaks after his release but questions conduct of Police

Convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement, Osagyefo Oliver Barker-Vormawor has said he was stripped down and kept in police cells for 8hours, for a “road traffic offense” when he was arrested again.

In a Facebook post after his release on Tuesday May 17, he said “Just released. Arrested at 7:30am. Stripped down and kept in police cells for 8hours, for a ‘road traffic offense’ apparently. 30,000 cedis bail and 2 sureties.

“I am not above the law.

“But why did the 7 Police officers take Albert Donkor from the Police cell, and go and shoot him inside the bush? Then for three weeks lie to his mother that he was assisting with investigation? How is this still a democracy?!”

Barker-Vormawor was arrested Tuesday morning by officers of the Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service.

He announced the charge himself on his personal Facebook page.

His arrest comes a day after he appeared on Accra-based Metro TV, where he expressed critical concerns about his recent arrest and trial on his alleged plot to stage a coup d’etat.
