Developments stemming from the seizure of 5 cars from the house of the National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams continue to interests Ghanaians who were taken aback by the situation.
In an interview with Host of Citi Eyewitness News, Richard Sky, Kofi Adams could not state emphatically if he personally purchased the five cars that were allegedly seized from his home by national security operatives.
When the, asked whether he owned all the vehicles, Mr. Adams said “I am the owner of the two land cruisers and a pick-up. They are registered in my name. If something is registered in your name don’t you own it?” he asked.
According to him, people should rather be concerned about the unlawful entry and seizure of people’s assets in their private homes in the name of national security, rather than who purchased the vehicles.
“A state vehicle cannot be registered in an individual’s name. State vehicles they don’t pay taxes on them, so they can’t be registered in an individual’s name unless it is sold or auctioned after a period of time, then the ownership is then transferred from the state to that individual; but that is not the case here either.
In related development, sources have it that the National Security Minister Albert Kan-Dapaah, has ordered that the cars be returned and went further to call Mr Adams on phone to apologise to him over the matter saying neither he nor government sanctioned the raiding his home on Wednesday.
Mr Kan-Dapaah has promised to sanction the officers who led the raid.
