A member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) legal team is questioning the professionalism of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Director-General, COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah.
To Abraham Amaliba, the police invitation to chairman of his party, Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo over the recent kidnappings and fire outbreaks in the country is just a scheme by the Akufo-Addo government to get at its opponents.
Commenting on the summoning of Mr Ofosu-Ampofo, on Joy News Morning show, Thursday, the NDC legal team member maintained that the allegation leveled against his client, is untenable.
“Our markets are places that people go in to sleep. We have wee smokers all over the place, people smoke all over the place, is not like the Kaneshie market where after the day’s activities it is locked. People sleep in the market, people cook in the market and so for you to trump up this allegation so as to continue to harass our chairman is untenable,” he noted.
A letter from the Police CID inviting the NDC chairman said “some 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.”
The CID has, therefore, summoned the top opposition
politician, asking him to report at the CID headquarters on Thursday, May 9, at
“We look forward to your co-operation in this matter of national interest,” the police wrote.
However, Mr Amaliba has indicated that as lawyers, they have met and given the appropriate advice.
“I will speak as a lawyer, and yesterday I had the chance to crosscheck the issue but because it is about lawyer-client relationship, I won’t make any further comment on the issue,” he said.
