Alan Kyerematen, the Independent Presidential Candidate and head of the Movement for Change, made a visit to see Hopeson Adorye, who is currently being held in detention.

On Wednesday, May 22, 2024, Adorye was taken into custody at the Ministries Police Station.
His arrest followed allegations of his admission to carrying out a dynamite explosion in the Volta Region during the 2016 general elections.

Yaw Buaben Asamoa, a former MP for Adentan, has spoken out against the arrest, labeling it as a move driven by political motives.

During his visit, Kyerematen was joined by notable figures such as Boniface Abubakari Saddique, Yaw Buabeng Asamoah, Kofi Kapito, Alhaji Haruna Tafsiru Warlord, Ken Kuranchie, along with other affiliates of the Movement for Change.

Speaking after the visit, Buaben Asamoa said the allegations against Hopeson Adorye are false and unfair.

“Hopeson Adorye is not about to run away from Ghana or from his home because the police intend to charge him with the publication of false information. So to go to the extent of keeping him all day in the police station and bringing him over to the Ministries to detain him, you point fingers backwards at yourself that there is something political at play and it is not fair,” he said.

Hopeson Adorye’s arrest came after an interview he granted Accra FM on May 10 in which he claimed to be part of an orchestration that detonated a dynamite in the Volta Region to intimidate voters in the stronghold of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to pave the way for a New Patriotic Party (NPP) win.

He is alleged to have said, “Prior to the elections, we blasted dynamite in parts of the Volta Region, and that scared a number of people. When I finished casting my ballot in Tema, I drove to the Volta Region, and when I asked for the number of people who had voted and the expected number of voters, it turned out people did not come out to vote.”
