Hundreds of NPP faithfuls besieged the Police Headquarters in Accra demanding the release of the lawmaker amidst chanting war songs.

The Arrested Ken AgyapongA few minutes after 7pm, the police resorted to the firing of tear-gas formally known as a lachrymatory agent or lachrymator and water cannons to disperse the crowd.

Peace-Fm's Yaw Obeng Manu, who reported live from the Police Headquarters, was a victim of the tear-gas incident as he occasionally had to halt his report to catch his breath or get his bearings right after being blinded by the non-lethal chemical weapon which stimulated the corneal nerves in the eyes to cause tears and pain.

According to him, the NPP faithfuls put up a spirited attempt to prevent the police from ostensibly carting the lawmaker away to the "safe" place.

"While the police fired rubber bullets and tear-gas to disperse them, the NPP supporters responded by pelting the officials with stones...in the end the might of the police showed as they were able to whisk the NPP MP away," he narrated.

Meanwhile, another possible clash is imminent as the NPP activists have blocked the main road leading to the BNI offices near the Ghana Immigration Service with huge stones, wooden logs and a huge bonfire.

The police are also said to be deploying more men to break down the "blockade".
