Buaben Asamoa: Hopeson Adorye’s arrest politically motivated


Yaw Buaben Asamoa, a former Member of Parliament for the Adentan constituency and member of the Movement for Change, has asserted that the arrest of Hopeson Adorye is politically motivated. Adorye, a prominent figure within the Movement for Change, was detained by the police after claiming in a radio interview in Accra that he had detonated dynamites in the Volta Region during the 2016 General Elections. This statement quickly went viral.

In an interview with Citi News, Buaben Asamoa detailed the sequence of events, explaining that Adorye was asked to visit the police headquarters on Wednesday and was subsequently detained. “I accompanied Mr. Adorye to the police headquarters,” Buaben Asamoa recounted. “He was asked to make a statement and spent the entire day there. However, around 6 pm, we were informed that Mr. Adorye would be detained pending further instructions from above.”

Buaben Asamoa firmly believes that Adorye’s arrest is an attempt to intimidate and silence the Movement for Change. “Because if Hopeson has been up and running and there are people who are feeling a little edgy and jittery about some of the things he has been saying, and this is the way of muscling him, trying to frighten the Movement for Change, it won’t work. I believe strongly that it’s politically motivated.”

Currently, Hopeson Adorye remains in custody and is expected to appear in court on Thursday. Although he has not yet been charged with a crime, the police are investigating him for the publication of false information.
