The MCE for Sekondi-Takoradi has been suspended from office with immediate effect, a letter signed by Daniel Botwe, the Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development has said.

“On the instructions of the president, the Metropolitan Chief Executive for Sekondi-Takoradi Assembly, Mr Abdul-Mumin Issah has been suspended from office with immediate effect pending an inquiry into his encounter with the police on 3 February 2022”

“Without prejudice to the matter now before court, government takes a very dim view of the comments made by the Metropolitan Chief Executive during his exchanges with the police.”

The Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Chief Executive, Abdul-Mumin Issah has been granted bail after spending one night in police custody for a road traffic offence and alleged assault of a police officer.

He was arraigned in court Friday morning for dangerous driving and alleged assault of a police officer.

The court granted him a GHc100,000 bail on one charge and a self-recognisance bail on the other.

The case has been adjourned to 15 March 2022.

Earlier, a statement by the Western Regional Police Command said that “the MCE has been charged with three counts of assault on a public officer, offensive conduct conducive to breaches of the peace and disturbing the peace in a public place”.
