The opposition NDC has dared the police to arrest its national chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo after a decision not to allow him to honour the CID investigation.
The CID on Wednesday invited the beleaguered NDC national chairman to appear before it for questioning connection with kidnappings and market fires Thursday at 2 pm.
According to the CID, its investigations into recent kidnappings and fire outbreaks in the country fingered the NDC’s national chairman as part of a “grand scheme designed to cause fear and panic in the country.”
Addressing a news conference Thursday at the party’s headquarters in Accra moments after Mr Ofosu Ampofo officially wrote to the CID boss through his lawyers that he is unable to honour her invitation to him, Mahama Iddrisu, Vice Chairman of the NDC Council of Elders said the party supports the national chairman’s snubbing of the CID.
“The position of the NDC which we the elderly members of the party’s council of elders have reluctantly forced to endorse because of the times we are in is very simple. Enough is enough!” he said.
“We have had enough of the vile intimidation and threats,” he continued and “the NDC will not be muffled or unnerved by a police CID director general who has shown by all her actions to be a partisan and on badge supporter named member of the NPP.”
“Our national chairman is under no compulsion or obligation to assist the police in their investigation and the NDC will not allow him to honour such vexatious invitation,” he declared.
