British High Commissioner, Harriet Thompson, says she looks forward to see how the arrest of the convener of the FixTheCountry Movement will turn out.
In a tweet on Tuesday, she said, “Oliver Barker Vormawor, convener of #FixTheCountry movement, arrested again, I understand for a motoring offence on his way to court. I’ll be interested to see where this goes…”.
The lead convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor, was taken to the East Legon Police cells after he was arraigned before the Madina District Court.
He was charged with careless and inconsiderate driving.
Barker-Vormawor subsequently announced the charge on his personal Facebook page.
He was arrested Tuesday, May 17, by officers of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service.
Meanwhile, Mr. Barker-Vormawor says he has been arrested three times this year alone due to his activism.
He added that following those arrests, he has been sued three times – twice by the Ghana Police Service and once by the Electoral Commissioner.
“Very bizarre that I had never been arrested in life; yet, in just one year of #FixTheCountry activism, I have already been arrested three times.
I have also been already sued three times, twice by the Ghana Police Service and the Electoral Commissioner”, he wrote on Facebook after his re-arrest on Tuesday morning.
