The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has once again extended an invitation to the National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo for interrogation.

The Police suspect Chairman Ampofo to be the brain behind recent kidnappings and fire outbreaks in the country.

The letter of invitation to the NDC National Chair dated May 7, 2019, a copy of which has been intercepted by in part read “The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has commenced investigations into cases of kidnapping and fire outbreaks in various parts of the country. Intelligence gathered indicates that some of these kidnappings and fire outbreaks are being orchestrated by various unidentified groups, persons and individuals. Some of the persons picked up for interrogation and investigation have mentioned your name as part of a grand scheme designed to cause fear and panic in the country”.

“As a result of the above information and intelligence you are kindly requested to report to the undersigned on Thursday, May 9, 2019, at 2pm to assist in our investigations”.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo and a deputy Communications Director of the NDC, Kwaku Boahen, are currently standing trial before an Accra Commercial Court.

The NDC National Chair has been charged with conspiracy to cause harm and assault against a public officer following a leaked tape during a meeting with party communicators.

In the leaked tape, a voice which is said to be that of Mr. Ampofo is heard telling party communications that “we’re going to take her [EC boss] to the cleaners.”

“As for the EC chair, we must wage a relentless war on this EC chair. Me, she doesn’t want to see my face,”Ofosu-Ampofo allegedly said at the meeting which took place after the Ayawaso by-election.

He’d also incited the party communicators to verbally attack the Peace Council chairman Professor Emmanuel Asante.

Mr. Ampofo and Kwaku Boahen were previously charged by the Police for conspiracy to commit crime to wit, kidnapping and conspiracy to commit crime to wit, threat of harm.

They have since been granted bail after appearing in court.
