“Sir John is no longer alive and it is not because he is not alive I can’t everything so I have resigned. I wish the commission well and I hope everything they doing will be a success,” he said.
Charles Owusu came under public scrutiny following non-adherence to coronavirus protocols at the funeral of Sir John.
He revealed later that he was arrested and granted by the Ashanti Regional Police Command.
“I went to the Ashanti Regional police headquarters. I went with other family members from Wonoo. We were about five. We were invited two days ago by the Mamponteng police that the GMA had petitioned the IGP over the breaches at the funeral so we should be investigated. “I had a conversation with them and they told us the signal is from regional command. I was not feeling well so we asked for some days and went this morning.
“The case is before the Regional Police CID. We were quizzed on the provisions we made. After the conversation, the police informed me that I have been arrested so I need someone to bail me. I was in charge of the funeral so I decided to step up and avail myself as the family member,” Charles Owusu narrated.
