Kwame Baffoe, the Brong Ahafo Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has warned Metro TV journalist, Randy Abbey, and the Greater Accra chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kobina Ade Coker, to return state vehicles which he said were in their possession or face trouble.
Baffoe told Accra-based Asempa FM that government would forcibly retrieve the vehicles from if they did not return it as soon as possible.
“We are warning Randy Abbey and Ade Coker to be ready for us and return the government vehicles in their possession…we are coming after them next…,” he said.
His comment comes barely two days after armed soldiers and national security officials, numbering about 15, raided the house of Kofi Adams, the national organiser of the NDC, and took away five vehicle parked in the compound, which the security officials thought belonged to the state.
It turned out, however, that the vehicles were not state-owned, prompting the National Security minister, Albert Kan Dapaah, to return them to Kofi Adams with an apology.
Ade Coker has also denied being in possession of state vehicles, stressing that he has never used a state vehicle.
"I bought my first car at age 24, I have bought more than 10 cars all with monies I earned through my sweat and toil. I have never used any state car before, when my party was in power, we were not given state vehicles so I’m surprised by what I’m hearing," he said.
