The Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) leader, Madam Akua Donkor was on Monday arrested by police in Kumasi.
This follows a complaint lodged by a trader, Ama Yeboah that the politician defrauded her of ¢10,500.
According to the complainant, she bought a parcel of land from Madam Donkor in 2009 but has not been able to develop the property as the politicians family will not allow her to step foot on the land.
Madam Yeboah said several pleas to Akua Donkor to intervene in the matter have proved futile.
She, therefore, reported the matter to the police after getting a tip-off that the politician had gone to Kumasi on Monday.
Akua Donkor has been asked by the police to write her statement.
