A leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sylvester Mensah, has said the continuous investigation by the police of the National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo over allegations of kidnapping are misplaced.
Mensah who believes the National Chairman is innocent further described as ‘unimaginable and laughable’ the action by the police, adding that it is time the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) took serious steps on the matter.
Speaking to Citi News, Mensah said the security agencies should begin focusing on the actual perpetrators of the crime and run the CID like a professional and not a political body.
"Ofosu Ampofo is not a kidnapper. I think the police are looking at the wrong way and its a political gaze they are giving.
It is unfortunate that we have allowed a professional body to degenerate into a political institution. The whole thing looks like a huge joke," he said.
He added that those who kidnapped the ladies were out there and the focus had been turned to the NDC national chairman.
Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, turned himself in to the police after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
It came after the opposition party claimed there were plans to arrest its chairman in a demeaning manner.
Ofosu Ampofo is currently on trial for allegedly inciting some NDC faithful towards violent acts in apparent response to the violence during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
He was heard on a leaked recording allegedly sanctioning verbal attacks on some public officers like the Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson, Jean Mensa.
