Police deny storming church to arrest ‘suspect’ Sosu

The police have described as untrue reports that some officers were at the Believers’ House of Prayer Ministries in Madina on SUnday, October 31 to pick up Member of Parliament Francis-Xavier Sosu for interrogation.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the police said any plain-clothed personnel found on the premises of the church may have been there for intelligence purposes and not to effect an arrest.

The Head Pastor of the church, Bishop Chris Ablordey, told journalists, however, that the men had intimated to him that they were there to arrest the MP for investigations, having invited him four days ago.

In confirming the invitation and subsequent decline on the part of the MP, the police said so far three persons have been interrogated as regards last Monday’s demonstration at Ayi Mensah.

They said their resolve to get Mr Sosu to subject himself to interrogation was halted after he cited Parliamentary privilege. He has since reported the officers to the Speaker of Parliament.

But the law-enforcement agency said “we shall continue to use every legal means to interrogate all other suspects including the Honourable MP for Madina”.

It called for public support as investigations into the matter continue.

Late Sunday, the police announced the interdiction of the bodyguard of the MP for alleged misconduct.
