Handcuffed like a common criminal, the former Ashanti Regional Police Commander was dragged out of office by the thugs in deviance of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s directive for DCOP Opare Addo to continue.

“I was packing my things in the office when 7 guys forcefully entered my office and said they had been asked to bring me to Accra,” the retired DCOP recounted in an interview on Starr FM’s Morning Starr and monitored by YEN.com.gh.

“I told them I will not go and immediately they handcuffed me. Eventually, the Ashanti regional security commander came in and I was freed so I reported the matter to the police,” he added.

The thugs claimed they were officials of the embattled National Security.

A week after his traumatic ordeal, DCOP Opare Addo is yet to be communicated to about any investigations and possible prosecution in the matter.

“I don’t know what action they’re going to take against them but I’ve reported the case to the police. I was surprised that the guys came to my office and even handcuffed me but they were left to go without any arrest,” he stated.

Delta Force dominated the news in 2017 after the group stormed the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council to physically drag out a Security Liaison appointed by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

Kareem attended Wesley Girls High School from 2006 to 2009.

Narrating her torturous ordeal in a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Kareem who is now a Medical Doctor said authorities at her alma mater prevented her from contesting for the school’s prefectship because she is a Muslim.

“I have previously mentioned being passed over for prefectship which I believe was because I am Muslim. Like most things surrounding what Muslims can and can’t do, can and can’t be, nothing is spelt out plainly so everything is obscure and ambiguous for a reason,” she wrote.

Kareem’s ‘tell it all’ post is coming on the back of the school’s recent raging scandal.

It will be recalled that Muslim students were stopped from observing the just-ended month of Ramadan.

There have been several backs and forth regarding the school's reason why they do not want the students to fast.
