As per the PRO of the Provincial Police Headquarters, Joint Commissioner of Police, Mrs. Irene Oppong, the police collected the checks attributed to Paul Amoah at just the hotel where criminals were taken and asked him to help in the operation.

Presenting to the reporters, she said that the Member Parliament , Mrs Morrison filed a case about the suspected assassination attempt on her head, explaining that the Swedru Unit Patrol Team detained four perpetrators on October 17, 2020—Saddick Abubakar, Gordon Kunya, Isaac Addea, and Dauda Fatau on the basis of evidence that certain strongly-built people (machos) whose actions appeared sinister were staying at a hotel.
