Man Who Said He Would Stage A Coup When E-Levy Is Passed Arrested, Police Issue Statement
The police have reportedly arrested a Ghanaian lawyer, Oliver Barker, after he revealed plans to stage a coup d’etat in Ghana if the controversial E-Levy bill is passed on social media.
According to one Felicity Naana Nelson in an interview with 3news.com, Oliver Barker was picked up at the Kotoka International Airport just after he landed in Ghana on Friday, February 11.
“Oliver has been arrested at the KIA,” she said after she earlier announced the arrest on her Facebook page.
“Osagyefo Oliver Barker-Vormawor arrived in Kotoka International Airport at 4pm today and he was whisked away by state officials. Oliver has been missing for the last 6 hours,” she had earlier written on her Facebook page.
“We continue to call on the good people of Ghana to avoid making pronouncements that may lead to a breach of the peace of the country as any such act contravene the laws of the country,” the Police said in a statement on Saturday February 12 announcing the arrest of the Convener of the Fixthecountry Movement Oliver Baker-Vormawor on Friday February 11.
“Mr Oliver Baker-Vormawor has been arrested by the Tema Regional Police Command following a post he allegedly made on social media platforms to the effect that he would stage himself if the E-levy bill is passed by Parliament,” portions of the Police statement said.
The police, however, warned the general public to desist from making utterances that threaten the peace of the country.
