One of the leading figures of the Fixthecountry movement Oliver Barker-Vormawor, has been arrested at the Kotoka International Airport after he arrived in the country from the UK Friday night.

A police statement said Mr Barker-Vormawor was picked up for threatening a coup if the controversial E-levy is passed.

Earlier, a member of group Felicity Nelson had called for his release in a video on Facebook.

“Oliver Barker-Vormawor arrived at the KIA around 4 pm [on Friday], and around 5.20 pm, he sent a message to one of his family members that some security personnel had arrested him.

“It has been nearly six hours since anyone heard from him. We don’t know where he is, we have tried the Airport Police Station and National Security Head Office, but could not find him there” she said.
