Tarkwa-Nsuaem MP has disclosed that one person has been arrested in connection with the attack on him and his family over the weekend.
Mireku Duker said the suspect is currently in police custody.
“The police was brought in after the incident and they arrested the suspect,” he said on JoyNews’ FrontDesk Monday.
The family of the MP was attacked on Saturday at about 3 pm.
The MP narrated that the incident was sparked when a knife was pulled on a boy over suspicion that he was recording the thugs who perpetuated the act, while they were misbehaving at a funeral.
“We normally have funerals in front of one of our family houses. So one boy, between the ages of 10 and 13 was around holding a phone when the thugs were misbehaving.
“Thinking that the small boy was recording them, one of the thugs called the boy to bring his phone for them to check whether or not he was recording.
The MP stated that while the phone was being inspected, one of the thugs pulled out a knife on the boy.
“So one of my nephews questioned them on why they were attacking the young boy and that provoked them,” he said.
He added that a lady who was also at the scene was not forgiven when she questioned the thugs on why they were carrying out the attacks.
The MP said following the attack, his family has been moved out of Dompin to ensure their safety.
He, however, says four others are still on the run.
