The under fire National Democratic Congress (NDC) financier Alfred Woyome has been picked up by the security agencies following orders from President John Evans Atta Mills.
Reports reaching Citifmonline. com have it that three of his women supporters, who stormed the police CID headquarters to demand his release, have been arrested.
One is said to be a close relative of Mr. Woyome, who allegedly exchanged fisticuffs with a police officer at the CID premises.
Mr. Woyome is currently at the Police Headquarters for questioning exactly 24 hours after the Economic and Organised Crimes Office submitted its interim report implicating him in manipulation of documents and information to milk the country.
Woyome was arrested on his way to work on Friday and was virtually forced out of his car in traffic, but it is however unclear whether his arrest follows an advice from the Attorney General and Minister of Justice Benjamin Kunbuor on the EOCO report.
Dr. Kunbuor, according to a Deputy Information Minister, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, is expected to brief President Mills on what decision to take in the never-ending Woyome saga by close of day today.
Mr. Ablakwa indicated that the President has and will always maintain his integrity to ensure that his reputation is not impugned.
President Mills tasked the Attorney General to study the interim report submitted by the EOCO and immediately advice him on government’s next line of action.
The report also established that an amount of GhC400, 000 was “paid to the wife of Mr. Nerquaye-Tetteh [Chief State Attorney] on June 16, 2011” but failed to mention reasons behind the payment.
