Nii Lante Vanderpuije, 15 others arrested
Incumbent MP for Odododiodoo constituency Nii Lante Vanderpuije has been arrested as part of a joint military-police operation.
The lawmaker and parliamentary candidate on the ticket of the NDC was picked up alongside his wife, daughter and about fifteen other men who were with him over alleged shootings in the area.
Mr Vanderpuije had earlier told GhOne TV exclusively that the police broke into a hotel he was working from and pumped tear gas into his room.
According to his lawyer Lesliw Anim, he has been taken to the Central police station in Accra.
Reports indicate that Nii Lante Bannerman’s men attacked him in his hotel but he has rather been arrested.
