Teacher accused of insulting DCE remanded

A teacher who was arrested at Ekumfi Otabanadzi in the Central Region for allegedly insulting the District Chief Executive of  Ekumfi, has been charged with indecent assault.

A Magistrate Court at Ajumako in the Central Region, has remanded him in police custody for a week.

The teacher, Daniel Hammond, a former Presiding Member of the District, was arrested last Friday whiles teaching at his school allegedly on the orders of the DCE, Ibrahim Dawson.
He was granted bail by the Headteacher of his school, after the police had initially refused him bail.

The teacher told Citi News that his only supposed crime was that, he notified the DCE of some discrepancies in the President’s ‘Accounting to the People’ address regarding some construction projects at Ekumfi-Esuehyia, also in the Central Region.

According to Mr. Hammond, the DCE was offended by his prying and first lodged a complaint at the Ekumfi District Assembly that he had insulted him.

“I was in the class room teaching and I saw two police men approaching the school. The whole thing was that my DCE had reported me to police that I had insulted him so I should go to the police station with them,” he said.

  1. It is a case of politics and a sabotage against Mr. Daniel Hammond.
    The said DCE envies and jalousies him being once a Presiding Member of same District.
    This DCE could even contract his killing. Mr. Hammond’s presence and genuine operations are a psychological threats and agony to DCE Mr Ibrahim Dawson.
    The DCE is simply attacking Mr. Hammond’s probable political future.
    The arrest was even wrong. The police are to arrest a suspect after the complainant immediately points out to him or her.
    However are we at fault to exhibit our freedom of speech at governmental misgivings?
    Acquit and discharge the suspect and shame the political DEVIL.
    To Mr. Hammond, please plan and plan for your security for the DCE can use any means to frame you up without doing so direct.
    Recently I personally encountered a similar situation of sabotage.
