The police also demanded he write his statement but he declined.

He was however granted self recognition bail.

Meanwhile, Mr. Solomon has refuted claims that he led the youth to vandalize the party office.

He accused the District Chief Executive for the area and the Member of Parliament for intimidating party members in the constituency.

He indicated, though the recent happenings within the party is highly condemnable, it is also a proof that the people are no longer moved by their intimidation.
