"Police in the Upper East regional capital say a one-year-old baby abandoned in the house "
Police in the Upper East regional capital say a one-year-old baby abandoned in the house of the 2nd suspect in the acid attack on the New Patriotic Party’s regional chairman- Adams Mahama- has been sent to the Bolgatanga children’s home.
Public Relations Officer of the police in the region ASP Thomas Agbenyo confirmed this to Joy News’ Albert Sore on Wednesday.
Contrary to reports that the suspect had escaped with his wife after committing the crime, ASP Agbanyo said the suspect left his wife and the baby in the house.
The woman, according to him, only escaped and left the baby in the house after police called to question her about the whereabouts of her husband.
He said they took custody of the child and were later informed that the house had caught fire.
It is not clear yet who or what caused the fire but neighbours were able to douse the fire, ASP Agbenyo said.
Meanwhile, ASP Agbenyo says death threats received by some NPP executives in the region have necessitated an increase in security in the area.
He said some executives of the party have already fled the town due to the threats but the police will ensure that those who are still there are protected.
He indicated that the police will embark on regular patrols in the town to avert anything awkward from occurring.
