Anyinasu arrest: I’m innocent – Isaac Agyapong

Kwahu East District Chief Executive, Hon. Isaac Agyapong has denied accusations by some residents in Anyinasu that he has labelled them ‘thieves and armed robbers’

He says his administration has not sent anybody to arrest any resident of Anyinaso as investigations are underway to keep the situation under control.

This position was made known by the DCE  when he received news of protesting residents who alleged intimidation, and arrest by persons claiming to be working for the DCE, Isaac Agyapong.

Speaking in an interview with local media, Mr. Agyapong said

“I’ve never said anywhere that Anyinasu residents are thieves, neither have I called for their arrest. Nobody has even informed me of an operation by the security”

Earlier, protesters who spoke with journalists registered their displeasure about the indiscriminate arrest of their members by some persons who claimed to be working for the government.

They alleged that the perpetrators , who are security operatives connived with the DCE to intimidate them.

Others have pleaded with the Assembly to save them from arrest, molestation and intimidation.

Meanwhile, the DCE says investigations are on going.

“I’ll urge all to keep calm while we resolve this once”.

Below is a copy of the rejoinder

Re: Residents of Anyinasu are Armed Robbers.

My attention has been drawn to an audio recording being circulated on social media platforms in which I am accused to have labelled the people of Anyinasu as “armed robbers”.

I’ve never said, anywhere, that the residents of Anyinasu a suburb of Sempoa are armed robbers, neither have they complained to me of any security operation in the area going sour. I have also not called for their arrest.

If you would recall, Security men have been deployed to the Kwahu enclave in recent times to clamp down on notorious armed robbers who have been terrorising market women and residents within the area.

The security Personnel were there on their routine operations based on intelligence gathered.
This is purely a security issue.

Information gathered is that the police retrieved fourteen(14) assorted guns which are suspected to be unlicenced and over 30 bags of weeds suspected to be indian hemp.

I’ll urge all, especially the residents of Anyinasu to keep calm whiles the police complete their investigations.
