In an interview with the Ghana News Agency the Brong-Ahafo Regional Commander of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department, Superintendent Stella Sedame, confirmed the arrest.
She cautioned evangelists who have not obtained permit to do so or face the full rigours of the law.
“The law is no respecter of persons,” Superintendent Sedame said, adding that the Police was in the position to ensure that the law was enforced.
