Bench warrant issued by court to arrest NPP Women’s Organizer, C/R
It has emerged that the Twifo-Atimoakwa District Magistrate Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of the NPP Women’s Organizer for Twifo-Atimoakwa Constituency in the Central Region, Angelina Nyarkoa.
This urgent decision to legally nail her follows her refusal to show up in court during several proceedings after some caterers dragged her to the court over non-payment.
The Magistrate Court presided over by His Honour Maxwell Ofori Kpodo issued the warrant for the arrest of the NPP’s Women’s Organizer who is also the Constituency Coordinator for the National School Feeding Programme after failing to show up in the court on several times.
The said NPP’s Women’s Organizer is alleged to have squandered money meant for the payment of some National School Feeding Programme caterers within the Constituency.
The report said Madam Nyarkoa during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the government’s decision to provide free hot meals for school children in the Constituency engaged the caterers to provide the service to school children.
He explained that Madam Nyarkoa collected the Mobile Money (Momo) account numbers of the caterers under the pretext of paying them through their Momo accounts but failed to do so since 2019.
Based on this, the caterers took the matter of non-payment of the funds to the court but Nyakoa failed to show up in court during several proceedings, compelling the court to issue a bench warrant for her arrest.
