Madina MP sues IGP

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Madina, Francis-Xavier Sosu has dragged the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), COP DR George Akuffo Dampare to court over human rights violations.

The MP is praying an Accra High Court to stop the police from unlawfully arresting him.

It comes after the Police sued Sosu for failing to report to the Police after an invitation was extended to the lawmaker.

The police charged him for unlawful blockage of road and destruction of public properties after Sosu led his constituents to demonstrate against the bad roads in the area.

Sosu believes the Police are abusing his fundamental rights to movement and  demonstration and expression.

He also wants an order of stay of all criminal investigations against him by the Ghana Police Service.

Meanwhile the MP is outside the country on Parliamentary duties.
