Oliver Barker-Vormawor released by Ghana Police 3

Convenor of the #FixTheCountry movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor, has been released from police custody after meeting his bail conditions.

Oliver was arrested on February 11, 2022, over claims that he had threatened to cause a coup if the government went ahead to pass the controversial Electronic Transaction Levy.

The Tema High Court granted Mr. Barker-Vormawor bail in the sum of GHS 2 million with two sureties.

 A member of the movement, Felicity Nelson, who made this known on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show, Thursday, said he was released around 2:40pm.

He has just been released like two minutes ago and he is doing very well as we speak. Oliver Baker-Vormawor is in high spirit after his release. He’s fine for now. We don’t know why the police kept holding Oliver Baker Vormawor after meeting all the bail conditions,” she made this known after being asked by the show host the whereabouts of the FixTheCountry convener.

He had to spend another night in police custody due to some challenges regarding his bail conditions.

Mr. Barker-Vormawor in his application for bail had contested claims of threatening a coup, saying a charge of treason felony against him cannot be sustained by the evidence available.

This is notwithstanding that the Attorney-General in an affidavit in opposition to the bail, insisted that evidence uncovered so far corroborates a charge of treason felony against the activist.

Mr. Barker-Vormawor, however, wondered why the Republic had not charged him or taken a statement from him on the charge
