Professor Ransford Gyampo of the University of Ghana says the case involving the alleged audio of NDC's Samuel Ofosu Ampofo may just be left to die off without any action been taken.


Prof. Gyampo who was speaking on Joy FM' NewsFile said his biggest fear is that this case may follow the regular trends where issues of great importance are left to die off without properly addressing them.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo who was invited by the CID over the alleged audio has not yet honoured the invitation.

"In Ghana, every leaked tape is doctored and every leaked tape is denied, my worry is that in Ghana when something happens we pray another issue comes to take over and the issue is left to die,"

"My position is that we may abandon this issue and allow it to die a natural death".

Background

In audio circulating, Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo who is the Chairman of the National Chairman of the NDC was 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.

This came to the attention of the Criminal Investigative Department (CID) who invited him to the Police headquarters on Thursday at 10:00 am.

He failed to appear on the said date and his lawyers explained that he is unavailable at the moment because he is bereaved and will honour the invitation when he is in good condition.
