The National Communications Director of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Sammy Gyamfi has called the bluff of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service for inviting Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo over recent kidnappings and fire outbreaks.
Mr Gyamfi said the NDC will resist any attempt by the government and CID to intimidate or threaten them with their political power.
“How on earth should you even dare to write a letter accusing our chairman of something he knows nothing about? Chairman Ofosu-Ampofo will not honour any invitation. We will resist any attempt,” he charged on Asempa FM’s Ekosi Sen Wednesday.
His comment comes after the CID wrote to invite Mr Ofosu-Ampofo to assist the police over recent kidnappings and fire outbreaks.
In a statement signed by the CID boss, COP Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah on Wednesday, the CID said “the outfit has begun investigations into the cases of kidnappings and fire outbreaks in various parts of the country.”
But, Mr Gyamfi believes the invitation is the creation of the CID boss.
“Why can’t they allow the opposition to operate in peace? You are always creating allegations to victimise us. In fact, we are tired of Akufo-Addo and his Tiwaa Addo-Danquah nonsense. What is happening is nonsense and must stop. What do they want from Ofosu-Ampofo,” he stated.
He asked the Police CID to rather go to court for a warrant because the NDC won’t allow Ofosu-Ampofo to honour the invitation.
“He will not come and will not be allowed to go to the CID office so they can start going to the court for an arrest warrant. If they want to arrest him, they will do so at all costs when he goes to the station so they know where they can find him so they should go for an arrest warrant and come.” he said.
