Ofosu-Ampofo was at the CID head office after he was invited following a viral leaked audio in which he allegedly made some comments bordering on the security of some persons and the country ahead of the 2020 general elections.
In the same tape, he is heard telling the audience believed to be executives of the party to attack the Chairperson of the Peace Council Chairman, Professor Emmanuel Asante.
According to the party’s National Organizer Joshua Hamidu Akamba, Ofosu Ampofo has been charged with attempting to cause harm and incite,
He also expressed disgust at how the police have handled the case so far.

Ofosu-Ampofo has been charged with threat of harm, conspiracy to cause harm, assaulting a public official, and rioting.
