Flagbearer of the NDC, John Mahama has asked the police to stop inviting the chairman of his party Ofosu Ampofo over " useless allegations ".
According to the former President and flagbearer of the NDC, the continues invitation of Ofosu Ampofo by the police is a sign of desperation on the part of the government.
Police invites Ofosu Ampofo
The Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service has invited the NDC chairman Ofosu Ampofo to appear at the police headquarters today Thursday, May 9 over the recent fire outbreaks and kidnappings in the country.
According to the letter signed by the CID boss Maame Yaa Tiwaa and read on Asempa FM's Ekosiisen on Wednesday, May 8, the NDC chairman's name has been mentioned as being part of the grand scheme to cause fear and panic in the country.
Letter to the NDC chairman reads, "the criminal investigations department of the Ghana Police Service has commenced investigations into cases of kidnapping and fire outbreaks in various parts of the country, intelligence gathered indicate that some of these kidnapping and fire outbreaks are being orchestrated by the various unidentified groups, persons and individuals, some of the persons picked up for interrogation and investigation have mentioned your name as part of a grand scheme design to cause fear and panic in the country ".
But responding to the letter, the Communications Director of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi said the chairman will not honour the invitation by the police because the content of the letter is fabricated.
