2 persons arrested for attempting to engage in double registration

Two persons have been arrested for attempting to register twice in the ongoing Limited Voters’ Registration Exercise in Asokore Mampong Municipality.

According to the Municipal Electoral Commission (EC) officer, Angela Afriyie Osei, the two suspects were arrested after being verified as persons already captured in the database of the Electoral Commission.

Madam Angela Afriyie also indicated that double registration and attempts to register minors have characterized this electoral process.

“The challenge we have been facing is about the double registration. At times when applicants come and we interrogate them, they insist he or she hasn’t registered before but when they go to the biometric column it will come out that the person has registered.

“At the moment, we’ve handed two to the police. One male and one female.”

Another issue is also with the registration of minors,” she indicated.

A party agent also stated that aside from the aforementioned challenges by the EC officer, the electoral process in the municipality is going well.

“So far, we are satisfied with the entire process except a few challenges but that aside, we are very much comfortable with the process. All in all, everything is great,” he said.

Meanwhile, fifteen persons have been injured after they were attacked by masked men while waiting in a queue to be registered in the ongoing limited voter registration exercise at Okaikoi North. 

According to the victims, the assailants took their mobile phones and over GH₵11,000 during the Sunday attack.

“Our phones, our money have been stolen. I had 150 dollars in my phone case, which was also stolen. My colleagues also suffered the same fate,” one of the victims recounted.

Another victim, Gifty Dogbe, who could not stand, told journalists that her legs gave up after one of the attackers hit her with a stick.
