Voter registration brouhaha: Collins Dauda granted bail

Collins Dauda, the Member of Parliament for Asutifi South, has been granted bail  after his arrest on Saturday, May 11, 2024, for his alleged involvement in some disruptions at a registration center.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP was arrested in relation to a recent disturbance during the limited voter registration operation in Kukuom, Ahafo Region, where one person was hurt and hospitalized, according to a statement released by the police over the weekend.

NDC National Communications Officer Mr. Sammy Gyamfi, however, has informed the media that the lawmaker was given immediate release on bail and emphasized that Mr. Dauda had done nothing illegal.

“He was immediately granted bail”, Mr Gyamfi told Accra-based Citi FM, adding: “And, so, he is currently on bail. And the police say that they are conducting their investigation, so, he will hear from them”.

“At no point was the Honorable Collins Dauda present at the scene,” Mr Gyamfi insisted.

Mr Gyamfi further condemned the arrest and urged the police to focus their efforts on apprehending the true perpetrators of the disturbance.

“So, we condemn what the police did and we are calling on them to focus on arresting the real perpetrators of that chaos, of those criminal actions”.

“The NPP hoodlums and bandits were led by a known NPP bandit called Anointing. He is a notorious guy in the area, everybody knows him, the police know him, they know where he lives. They should focus on arresting and prosecuting those hoodlums who went to the voting centre to harass, intimidate, and brutalise innocent citizens.”
