The Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, has told the Tema High Court court to deny convener of the #Fixthecountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor bail because he has no fixed place of abode.

This makes him a flight risk, he said.


“That investigations have revealed that the applicant has no fixed place of abode in Ghana thus making him flight risk,” he said.

Barker-Vormawor was rushed to the Police Hospital in the early hours of Wednesday March 9 after falling ill in Police cell.

A statement issued by the Movement said Barker-Vormawor has been feeling unwell since his detention.

He was arrested for allegedly writing on social media that he would topple the government if the E-levy bill is passed.

“Mr Oliver Baker-Vormawor has been arrested by the Tema Regional Police Command following a post he allegedly made on social media platforms to the effect that he would stage himself if the E-levy bill is passed by Parliament,” portions of the Police statement said.

He was denied bail by the court after being charged with treason felony.
