Tetteh, who is currently in Dubai, says the car was parked at Dzorwulu in Accra when police officials claimed that it was part of the cars in the presidential pool and seized it.

He said his wife, a worker at the State House, has been trying without success to retrieve the car which he said was not a state vehicle.

"What is this with Ghana police and the thug life? Can you imagine my car has been picked up by Ghana police that it is on of the cars missing from the presidential pool," Tetteh lamented on Facebook.

He said the episode was so frustrating and that no one was willing to talk to him regarding how the car could be retrieved.

He said many well-meaning Ghanaians have intervened on his behalf to no avail, adding: "Do we have human rights in this country at all?"

Tetteh said he heard that the car key was with police officer at the flagstaff house, G. Adu Amankwaah, but has been unable to get in touch with him.

"Have we ceased to have laws operating in this country? Since Thursday productivity has just gone down because as the case is in Ghana that car can disappear.. Since the police feel it is ok to keep the key but not okay to give a receipt that shows the car is in their possession, I will soon start uploading fotos and videos of the incidents online," he said.

Tetteh Donu, a friend of Nii Tetteh, showed YEN documents which showed that the Camry was not a state vehicle and that Nii Tetteh imported the car into Ghana and cleared it at the Tema port for GHC23,000.

Armed soldiers recently stormed the house of Kofi Adams, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) national organiser, and seized five vehicles, which they claimed were state vehicles, from his compound.

The National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah, however, later apologised for the episode and directed that Adam's vehicles be returned to him.

UPDATE: YEN understands that Flagstaff House has now released the vehicle to Tetteh after confirming that it is not a state car.
