An Ashaiman District Court has remanded into police custody one of the convenors of the #FixTheCountry movement, Mr Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor for two weeks.

The police Monday charged Mr Barker-Vormawor with treason felony.

This comes after Police picked him up last Friday following a Facebook post the suspect made “threatening a coup.”

Th Police said in a statement that Barker-Vormawor was arrested by the Tema Regional Police Command.

“The post contained a clear statement of intent with a possible will to execute a coup in his declaration of intent to subvert the constitution of the Republic of Ghana,” the police statement dated February 12, 2022, signed by the Director-General of Public Affairs, DCOP Kwesi Ofori said.
