Police grab two more of 16 wanted over riots at NDC congress


Police have arrested two more suspects wanted in connection with the violent disturbances that occurred during the 10th National Youth and Women’s Conference of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Cape Coast in the Central Region.

This comes a few days after the first two out of the 16 declared wanted were arrested.

The suspects, Iddrisu Abass alias Jango, who is believed to be the ring leader, and Dawda Mohammed Nazir, were arrested on Sunday, January 8 at Kintampo and Wenchi respectively.

In the course of the arrest, suspect Jango shot and wounded one of the police officers.

The officers returned fire and shot him in the legs.

Both the injured officer and the injured suspect are receiving medical attention and are in a stable condition.

Following the arrest, some youth of Wenchi massed up to attack the police team but police have since restored law, order and security in the area.

“The faces of the suspects have been shown because they had been declared wanted with their images already displayed in our quest to seek public assistance in getting them arrested,” police said in a statement announcing the latest arrest.

They added: “The targeted intelligence operations are still ongoing to arrest the remaining 12 suspects to face justice.”

This brings to four the number of suspects arrested so far in connection with the disturbances.
