The Awutu Senya East Constituency MP, Mavis Hawa Koomson has been arrested by police in the Central Region.

This follows a misunderstanding at a voters’ registration centre in Kasoa on Monday, which resulted in the Special Development Initiatives Minister firing a gun.

The Special Development Initiatives Minister told JoyNews that she only fired the gunshots when her life was threatened by some thugs alleged to be affiliated to the opposition NDC.

Despite this justification, the act has received massive condemnation from the public, with many calling for her resignation and subsequent prosecution.

Touching on the development, chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddy Blay described the calls as premature since the MP was the victim in the shooting incident.

But JoyNews’ Central Regional correspondent Richard Kwadwo Nyarko who is at the Regional Police Headquarters reports that Hawa Koomson is currently being interrogated by CID investigators.

Meanwhile, some four suspects who were also arrested in connection with the disturbance have been granted bail.

A Cape Coast Circuit Court presided by Dorinda Smith Arthur granted them bail to the tune of ¢30,000 each with two sureties for which one must be a government worker whose net salary is ¢2000.
