Ada District Police Arrests Hwakpo Self-styled Chief

The West Ada District Police Commander has led personnel to arrest Isaac Adi Buertey Puplampu, a self-styled chief of Hwakpo, for leading some thugs to illegally raze a native’s property.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) George Aboagye trailed the suspect to the Ada Traditional Council, where he appeared before a three-member committee on a chieftaincy dispute.
Immediately proceedings commenced, a female CID, holding handcuffs, entered the traditional court room to seek audience to pick Isaac Adi Buertey for allegedly mobilising some young men to destroy the building of his rival, the Ackwehs, who are challenging his legitimacy as the chief of Hwakpo, at the Traditional Council.
But after a brief tête-à-tête between the CID and the Council’s Registrar outside the room, the CID, in the company of three police personnel and DSP Aboagye, the Commander, waited outside with bated breath for the hearing to close to pounce on the suspect, who, the police said had ignored their invitation to him since his alleged action last Sunday.
Then, as soon as the Traditional Council had adjourned hearing and awarded GHc1,500 cost against the Ackwerhs, the complainants, to go and amend their plea, DSP Aboagye and his men dashed to grab Isaac Adi Buertey Puplampu outside.
Though his counsel pleaded handing him to the police, therefore, requesting DSP Aboagye to go ahead of them to the police station, the District Police Commander declined that.
As soon as the police arrived at the Sege District Police Headquarters with the suspect, they threw him behind the counter, where some cell inmates were heard welcoming Isaac Adi Buertey.
Interrogating him before his counsel on the illegal demolition of the structure at Hwakpo without a court order, Isaac Adi Buertey Puplampu told DSP Aboagye that he ordered two of his boys to carry out the unlawful exercise.
Though his counsel pleaded for bail for his client, DSP Aboagye insisted that Isaac Adi Buertey Puplampu mentioned the names and locations of the boys he instructed to destroy building without a court order.
“We need the names and the whereabouts of the two accomplices to assist the police in their investigations,” DSP Aboagye held while the suspect’s counsel still pushed for a bail for his client.
After hours of a failed granted request, Isaac Adi Buertey Puplampu’s counsel held a brief standing meeting with the supporters of his client on the forecourt of the police station, then he entered his Toyota Highlander vehicle and faded away.
After taking the suspect’s statement, the area’s Divisional Commander ordered the receipt of the docket while the suspect was kept in police custody.
