Barker-Vormawor Allegedly Arrested Again
Oliver Barker-Vormawor, the chief convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement, has been detained yet again.
One of the group’s conveners, Felicity Nelson, told an Accra-Based Media house that he was hauled up by police officers on his way to court on Tuesday morning.
On the Movement’s Facebook page, a post read: “Oliver arrested again. Police officer told him his rights are curtailed as soon as he was arrested. We are not safe.”
Mr. Barker-Vormawor threatened a coup on social media on February 10 when images emerged from the Majority Leader’s 65th birthday party displaying an ‘E-levy’-designed cake.
He posted, “If this E-Levy passes after this cake bullshit, I will do the coup myself. Useless Army!”
He clarified the context in which he used the word coup in a subsequent post.
Mr Barker-Vormawor was given a $2 million bail with two sureties on March 16.
Following his release, Mr Barker-Vormawor claimed that he was tortured while in police custody in a video.
