The Ashanti Regional Police Command has arrested nine more suspects in connection with an attack on the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator by the Delta Force.

This brings to 14 the number of suspects arrested so far.

Bamba, 37, an auto mechanic led a group of men from the governing New Patriotic Party’s Delta Force on Friday and stormed the office of the recently appointed Ashanti regional security coordinator to stop him from performing his functions.

The group said it cannot work with the regional security coordinator, Mr Adjei since he is not a native of the region.

According to the members, the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah, has already been petitioned about the appointment of Mr Adjei but he is yet to act on it.

Mr Adjei was said to have been maltreated by the well-built men on Friday when they stormed his office and dragged him out.

Police, however, arrived at the scene to save the situation.

The suspect, Bamba, has since been granted bail.

Meanwhile, the Ashanti Regional Police PRO, ASP Nketia Yeboah, has indicated that the police is preparing a docket for advice from the Attorney General.
