Suame NDC youth organizer detained, faces prosecution over ‘violent comments’ in viral video


The NDC youth organizer for Suame Constituency Razak Koampa Avoliya has been detained by the police to face prosecution for passing violent comments in a viral video.

Avoliya was at the Ashanti Regional police CID on Wednesday to assist police investigations after he was captured in the viral video asking party supporters to unleash mayhem on any activist of the New Patriotic Party during the 2024 polls.

He was later referred to the Suntreso District Police Command where he was cautioned and charged with offensive conduct. He is expected to face a court on Thursday, February 9.

His Lawyer Evans Amankwah has been providing additional information about the status of the case and his client said: “

“His caution and charge statement has been taken. They charged him with offensive conduct, and we are to go to court tomorrow. We will cooperate with the law. The detention does not perturb us. He is not worried and I assure the supporters of the NDC that, the youth organizer is in high spirits.”

Joseph Yammin, the NDC’s national organiser, defended the NDC Suame Youth Organizer’s comments and insisted that his detention will not scare the party.

“We are not in any way going to be intimidated by the police or the arrest. As we have massed up here, we will be coming anytime the police takes an action. What we are expecting them to do is to extend equal measure to the NPP. I am sure that the court will have no reason to detain our brother.”

The NDC’s regional leadership in Ashanti Region met with the police on Tuesday and pledged to work with them to uphold peace and order.

Ashanti Regional First Vice Chairman of the NDC, Captain Kwame Jabari told journalists the party will ensure the right thing is done.

“We have met the regional police commander for a discussion on the viral video. After our discussions, he said we should bring him to the police station. This morning, we took him to the Regional Police headquarters and was sent to the Sofoline Divisional Headquarters and so currently, he is with the crime officer, and possibly he will be processed for court.”
