The CID in a statement signed by its Regional Crime Officer, K Otuo Acheampong, requested that some persons be released to assist in the investigations of the missing tricycles.

This follows a letter filed by the then Chief Executive Officer of the Northern Development Authority, Dr. Alhaji Abdel-Majeed Haroun, chronicling how the tricycles were stolen.

In December 2019, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo revoked the appointment of the CEO of the NDA, Dr. Alhaji Abdel-Majeed Haroun.

In a letter dated December 12, 2019, and signed by the Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante, no reason was given for the revocation of the appointment of Dr. Haroun.

His dismissal might, however, be linked to the missing vehicles.
