They are the NPP Karaga Constituency Chairman, Tahiru Zakaria, the acting constituency Secretary, Abdulai Ziblim, the Nasara Coordinator, Osman Baba, an elder of the NPP, Nyab Mahamang, and the Research Officer, Abdul Karim S. Alhassan.

They were arrested after the beleaguered DCE lodged an official complain to the police.

On Wednesday, some irate youth of the NPP in the Karaga constituency chased out the DCE and the Youth Employment Coordinator for allegedly giving jobs to National Democratic Congress activists in the constituency.

The youth, who numbered about 50, claimed the DCE was stashing contracts to people who are not NPP members adding that Mr Yabdoo is also refusing to recognize the authority of the constituency chairman who he claimed did not support his DCE bid.
