The military imposter arrested at the polling station is said to have been dressed in full military attire.
Three political parties, the NPP, NDC and the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) are battling it out for the Assin North parliamentary seat today, Tuesday, June 27.
The seat became vacant after the Supreme Court on Wednesday, May 17, unanimously declared unconstitutional the election of Mr James Gyakye Quayson as the MP for the area over dual citizenship allegations.
Nonetheless, Mr Quayson is still contesting the seat on the NDC’s ticket despite an ongoing court case against him.
