There is mayhem in the Bole Bamboi constituency of the Northern region as law enforcers arrest two men who have been accused of posing as military personnel.

These men, unidentified, according to the Northern regional Minister, Limuna Mohammed Muniru, were intimidating voters at the voting center where they were arrested.

“There was a report that there were two gentlemen in military uniforms intimidating voters. On arrival, we saw two men running away and the police and military officers chasing them and arrested them,” he told Prince Minkah, of Ultimate FM in Kumasi.

An eyewitness, Edward Abubakhar, in a contradictory report said the arrests were instigated by one of the aspirants, Alhaji Sulemana Yusif, who arrived at the polling center “running around pointing hands at the men who were whisked away”

Alhaji Sulemana Yusif is contesting against Professor Amenu Zaharia whom he accuses of employing “thugs” to disrupt the voting process.
