Hajia Fati Arrested Over Kwabena Agyepong’s Smashed Car

Controversial member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Hajia Fati Amadu, was yesterday arrested by the police over the broken rear windscreen of the vehicle of the party’s General Secretary.

It follows a complaint lodged by the General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong, over the partial damage of his V8 Toyota Land Cruiser on Tuesday.

The incident happened at the party’s Asylum Down headquarters at the time the leadership of the NPP was holding a Steering Committee meeting.

This was when speculations had become rife that Mr Agyepong had gone to the headquarters to serve an injunction notice on the meeting.

It is therefore believed that an agitated member of the party might have hit the rear windscreen with a stone and in the process damaged it.

Even though it is not yet known who exactly could have caused the damage to the vehicle, leadership of the party has resolved to take up the cost of repairing the broken screen.

But news went round early morning yesterday that Hajia Fati, popularly known as Aliga, had been arrested in connection with the crime.

Hajia Fati, who confirmed the incident to DAILY GUIDE, said she had a call from the police to report at the headquarters of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to assist in some investigations so she went there in the company of her lawyer, Emmanuel Darkwah and former aide to the General Secretary, Musah Superior.

When they got there around 9:30 am, she narrated, the police took her statement in which she denied causing damage to Mr Agyepong’s vehicle.

Even though she admitted the fact that she was at the party headquarters at the time the incident reportedly happened, she said she did not touch the vehicle.

Instead, the tough-talking NPP woman indicated that she was there to protest against any attempt by the General Secretary to place an injunction on the Steering Committee meeting which was ongoing.

She was therefore granted bail in the sum of GH¢10,000 with Musah Superior standing surety for her.

Hajia Fati was then asked to go and that she would be informed to report at the police station when the need be.

She however expressed surprise as to why Mr Agyepong or any other person would want to link her to the damage of the vehicle, even though she had given her word of her willingness to cooperate fully with the police in respect of investigations.
