Collins Dauda granted bail

Collins Dauda, the Member of Parliament for Asutifi South, has been granted bail after being arrested on Saturday, May 11, 2024, for allegedly causing disruptions at a registration centre.

According to a police statement released over the weekend, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP was held in connection with a recent disturbance during a limited voter registration activity in Kukuom, Ahafo Region, in which one person was hurt and hospitalised.

The National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, confirmed the bail to Citi News, saying the legislator was given instant bail and reiterated Collins Dauda had done no crime.

“He [Collins Dauda] was immediately granted bail. 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.

“He was not there [at the scene] because he was busy in his constituency monitoring the registration process. So it came to us as a surprise when the police issued that statement, creating the impression as though Collins Dauda had committed a crime when they knew that he was not even at the scene when the said incident happened.”

Sammy Gyamfi further slammed the arrest, urging police to concentrate their efforts on apprehending the genuine offenders 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.”
