This follows Ofosu Ampofo’s failure to honor police invitation to him since Wednesday, February 27, in connection with his alleged comments.
Mr Ofosu-Ampofo was expected to appear before the CID last Thursday, February 28, after the police had invited him to speak to a leaked audio recording that allegedly had him speaking about several issues, including attacks on the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission and the Chairman of the Peace Council, Most Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Asante.
The CID issued a press statement Wednesday, February 27 explaining that they had invited the NDC national chairman to assist the police with investigations into a leaked audio recording, but his lawyers said their client did not receive any official invitation until late afternoon last Thursday.
