The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police has formally invited the National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo to assist with investigations into the leaked tape in which he was said to be conspiring with party members to harm political opponents.
The letter inviting Mr Ampofo said he should report at the CID headquarters on Thursday, February 28, 2019, at 10 am.
The NDC in a statement signed by the Communications Director, Sammy Gyamfi said the tape is false and concocted.
"The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken notice of an alleged leaked audio recording being circulated by officials and surrogates of Government and the New Patriotic Party, in which certain doctored remarks have been mischievously attributed to the National Chairman of the NDC."
Mr Ofosu Ampofo has come under fire over comments he allegedly made in the secret recording. On the recording, a voice believed to Mr Ampofo's is heard urging people to take the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa to the 'cleaners'.
The voice also endorsed verbal attacks on the National Peace Council Chairman, Most Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Asante. The audio tape also suggests that abductions and kidnappings could be used to silence political opponents.
