National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Samuel Ofosu Ampofo failed to appear before the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) for the second time.

His lawyer Abraham Amaliba told journalists on Friday that his client (Samuel Ofosu Ampofo) is bereaved, adding that it would require some more time to honour the invitation.

“Due to some circumstances our chairman could not make it so we came in here to plead with the police to gives some time to be able to come with our client,” Mr. Amaliba told the media.

He added that the police have agreed to reschedule the meeting, “however, they will get back to us with the [new] date and time.”

Mr. Ampofo was first expected to appear before the CID on Thursday but that did not materialize and was rescheduled to today but again he did not make the appearance.

It is now unclear which date and time the meeting would now take place.

His invitation by the CID is in connection with audio in circulation in which a voice alleged to be that of him is heard saying that the party deployed the Azorka boys to help protect its members during the Ayawaso by-election.

The recording also has a voice believed to be Mr. Ampofo urging people to take the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Adukwei Mensa to the 'cleaners'. The voice also endorsed verbal attacks on the National Peace Council Chairman, Reverend Emmanuel Asante.

The audio tape also suggests that abductions and kidnappings could be used to silence political opponents.
