The Brong Ahafo Regional Police Command has directed the Member of Parliament (MP) for Asutifi South, Alhaji Collins Dauda to report himself to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr David Asante Apeatu in connection with an alleged registration of minors in the on-going limited voter registration exercise being conducted by the Electoral Commission in the proposed new regions.

The Brong-Ahafo Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong said even though the MP was invited early Tuesday morning to report to the command, Alhaji Dauda stated that he would not be able to do so since he was on his way to Accra to attend to the recall of Parliament by the Speaker of the House.

Explaining the reason for the invitation of the MP, who was a former Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, the police officer stated that on September 22, 2018, the police received reports about disturbances at Kukuom in the Asunafo South District in connection with the ongoing limited voter registration exercise.

Chief Inspector Oppong stated that investigations conducted by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the police pointed to an alleged involvement of Alhaji Dauda in the registration of minors in the exercise in the area.

“It is in connection with this matter that we invited the MP for questioning. He has not been arrested”, he stated.


Graphic Online gathers that armed police officers stormed Alhaji Dauda's residence at Dadiesoba in the Asunafo South constituency of the Brong Ahafo region on Tuesday dawn but when he told them he was on his way to Parliament in Accra, they asked him to report to the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

Alhaji Dauda was spotted in Parliament House late Tuesday morning.
