Former Kumasi Mayor, Maxwell Kofi Jumah who was arrested by the police in Kumasi on the orders of Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Kofi Boakye has emphatically stated that, ” I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE POLICE” .

The former NPP Member of Parliament for Asokwa constituency was alleged to have physically assaulted a man he accused of stealing his phone but claims he is innocent.

The victim, identified as Jamel Agha, said Kofi Jumah and six others accused him of stealing the mobile phone and consequently subjected him to hours of severe beatings.

The 47-year-old man who spots severe bruises and lacerations on his body says the former MP and his bodyguards beat him with sticks while the MP pointed a gun at him.

This led to the arrest of the NPP man, who is now on bail after spending hours at the police stations to help police in their investigation.

However, outspoken Kofi Jumah affectionately called “Kofi Ghana” took to Facebook after his release indicating that “only criminals are afraid of the police and I am not criminal like most of the people”.

Read below what Kofi Jumah said after his arrest

Listen folks, the charges against me are bogus, tramped up charges. Let me warn them that I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE POLICE, only criminals are afraid of the police and I am not criminal like most people.

The police power does not extend to more than 48 hours. If they want to misuse it I am ready for them. I have not beaten anybody.

The facts are clear. Now how come the police will not allow me and Abigail to lodge a formal complaint against the thief who trespassed my house and stole the phone.

Some justice indeed…then that bogus reporting from Nhyira FM with collaboration from the police, I will deal with that radio station later.

Meanwhile let me make it clear that only a FOOL would attempt to gag Maxwell Kofi Jumah even when my mother’s death is fresh in my mind.

Auntie Bonsu, I miss your ever fighting spirit, but rest in peace, your sister Auntie Bea is alive and kicking. I was so overwhelmed by her fighting spirit.

Oh don’t let me leave out Mama China, Sister, Maame Konadu and the rest of the ladies from the NPP. Oh had it not been my intervention there would have been a scene at the CID regional headquarters.
