The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken a firm stand not to ‘allow’ its National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo to respond to another invitation from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service.
Ofosu Ampofo has been invited again to respond to allegations of kidnapping and involvement in recent fire outbreaks in the country.
“The Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service has commenced investigations into cases of kidnapping and fire outbreaks in various parts of the country. Intelligence gathered indicates that some of these kidnappings and fire outbreaks are being orchestrated by unidentified groups, persons and individuals. Some of the persons picked up for interrogation and investigation have mentioned your name as part of a grand scheme designed to cause fear and panic in the country,” a portion of a communique from the CID read.
Responding to this in an interview on UTV Evening News, Wednesday, Sammy Gyamfi, National Communications Officer of the NDC said the party has decided not to honor the invitation.
“We are law-abiding but that does not mean we can be cowered . . . what is going on is clear harassment and intimidation . . . these things normally happen in Libya. We are telling Tiwaa and Nana Addo that enough is enough. There is no way he is going to respond to their invitation. NDC will not allow Chairman Ofosu Ampofo to go to the police headquarters today nor tomorrow,” he said.
