The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police is grilling Kofi Adams, the national organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) over nine vehicles found in his house, according to a report by the Daily Guide.
The report said Adams reported to the CID headquarters in Accra for questioning over his ownership of the vehicles whose documentation he could not provide.
The vehicles reportedly included six Toyota Land Cruiser V8 vehicles and three picks-ups, which were suspected to be part of the fleet of cars at the presidency.
Five vehicles – two Toyota Land Cruiser V8s with registration numbers GS 7451-12 and GN 7796-16 – and three Nissan Hard Body pick-ups with registration numbers GM 842-16, GM 823-16 and GM 846-16, were seized from Adam's house in Tema last week Wednesday.
The Daily Guide claimed that some of the vehicles were purchased in the name of the state but the current owner allegedly scrapped [tampered] with the chassis numbers under the wind shield of the pickups and sealed the place with a metal – all in an attempt to change ownership of the vehicles.
However, the report said, they could not scrap the chassis numbers in the engine.
Kofi Adams is said to be struggling to provide documentation that would enable the government return the vehicles to him.
