The Swedru Divisional Police command has apprehended four armed men allegedly hired to kill the Member of Parliament for Agona West, Mrs. Cynthia Mamle Morrison.
The four, were among a group of five, who had lodged at the Elohim Hotel in Agona Swedru in the Central region, hatching how to execute their plot when the police pounced on them, angelonline.com.gh has gathered.
The fifth suspect absconded upon seeing the police.

Paul Ofori Amoah was subsequently picked up on Saturday evening by the police for questioning.
