The Tafo-Pankrono Divisional Police Command has picked up two persons allegedly connected to the disturbances which took place during an NPP constituency meeting at Tafo.

The two are 49-year-old Paul Attah Onyinah, and 51-year-old Richard Yaw, who are both members of pro-NPP vigilante group, Delta Force in the Tafo-Pankrono constituency.

The men are suspected to be part of aggrieved Delta Force members who disrupted a meeting of constituency executives chaired by the Member of Parliament for that constituency, Dr Anthony Akoto Osei over the weekend.
Reports say the group wanted to physically assault the MP who doubles as Monitoring and Evaluation Minister over failed election promises before the 2016 general elections.

The MP was however assisted to escape unhurt.

The suspects have been transferred to the Ashanti Regional Police headquarters for further investigations.

According to police, three other members are on the run.

Reports say the suspects have been charged with conspiracy to commit a crime, to wit rioting and rioting, and will soon be arraigned.
