In an interview with Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don) on Accra FM's Ghana Yensom on Wednesday, 6 November 2019, Toobu said: “I have not been invited by the BNI for any interrogation.”
As reported by Classfmonline, the NDC has called on the general public to disregard any news publications to the contrary.
A statement by the party’s Upper West regional office said Supt Peter Toobu (rtd) is a law-abiding citizen who has spent a considerable part of his life serving this nation diligently as an officer of the law.
“His love and respect for democracy and rule of law made him present himself to serve his people through the established democratic processes after resigning from the Ghana Police Service where he occupied a lofty position as Executive Secretary to the IGP for many years.
It is, therefore, warped logic to even begin to imagine that a man who has demonstrated such magnitude of reverence for democracy and due processes could ever brood destabilising the same democracy that he has firmly committed himself to.
Per a report by classfmonline.com, the statement further noted that Supt Toobu (rtd) would avail himself for any lawful interrogation
According to Citi News, sources within the Bureau for National Investigation (BNI) and National Security operations this brings to three the number of police officers invited over the alleged coup plot.
Supt. Toobu, who recently resigned from the police service to constest and eventually won the NDC parliamentary candidate for Wa West Constituency in the Upper West Region.
