The Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Bugri Naabu, on Saturday reported himself to the police.

He was subsequently granted police enquiry bail to report periodically.

The Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ebenezer Tetteh, in an interview with The Ghanaian Times, said the Regional NPP Chairman who honoured the invitation on Saturday morning, submitted a statement to the police and was granted police enquiry bail.

ASP Tetteh said Naabu was helping the police in investigations, stressing that the police was treating the case with the seriousness it deserves.

He maintained that the police would not allow any one or group to foment trouble in the area.

Mr. Naabu early last week allegedly said the NPP was ready to recruit “machomen” to police ballot boxes in the region.

He was also alleged to have said that the party’s “machomen” would deal mercilessly with people who attempt to snatch ballots on December 7.
Many people, including civic society organisations have described these comments as unguided and could caused violence in the area.

However, the Northern Regional Secretary of the NPP said the comments of the chairman were harmless as they were meant to help protect ballots on the election day.
