The leader of pro-government Elephant Youth Association, Stephen Amoh alias Osono, has been arrested by the police for unlawful assembly in breach of the public order act.
This was after he led the group to picket the private residence of the deputy chief of staff Francis Asenso-Boakye on Wednesday, 27 November 2019 and levelled accusations of embezzlement against him.
The group alleged that Mr Asenso-Boakye owe them and has refused to released funds given them by president Akufo-Addo.
The group often parades elephant mascot at NPP outdoor events including rallies.
Mr Asenso-Boakye has, however, denied the allegations. He said in a statement that he does not owe any person or group of persons money, nor has the President given him any money for a group of persons which he has withheld, as alleged.
Mr Asenso-Boakye subsequently lodged a complaint with the police.
Osono was arrested by personnel from the police CID on Thursday, 28 November and is expected to be arraigned today, Friday, 29 November 2019.
