Baba Alhassan, the leader of the group that chased out the CEO of the Tamale Teaching Hospital last Monday was picked up Thursday morning in his house.
The PRO of the Northern Regional Police Command, DSP Ussifu Tanko who confirmed the arrest said he is currently assisting the police in its investigations.
However, the four persons arrested in connection with the incident have been released on police enquiry bail.
This is because the Police could not get any evidence against them.
The Hospital Authorities were called to identify them but could not identify them as being part of those who besieged the hospital.
Meanwhile, Executive Director of Africa Centre for Security and Counter Terrorism, Emmanuel Kotin has attributed the failure of Tamale Teaching Hospital staff to identify persons arrested in connection with the disturbances, to lack of protection for whistle blowers.
Speaking to GBC’s Nana Ama Omari, Mr. Kotin said it is likely the staff for fear of betrayal failed to assist the police.
Mr. Kotin urged politicians to stop engaging unemployed youth in social vices and desist from interfering in the operations of the Police Service.
