CID Case: Keep Quiet And Suffer —Afenyo Markin
Outspoken Member of Parliament (MP) for Efutu constituency in the central region of Ghana, Hon. Alexander Kwamena Afenyo Markin has heavily descended on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for criticizing CID Boss, COP Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah for inviting the NDC’s National Chairman, Elder Ofosu Ampofo for questioning over the recent kidnappings and infernos.
Speaking on Adom TV’s political show dubbed Badwam, The enraged MP disclosed that "I was arrested whiles discharging my duties in court as a Lawyer during NDC’s tenure yet I never complained to anyone, and till date the leadership of my party (NPP) are not aware that the NDC arrested me whiles there were in power."
He said it baffles him why the NDC has kept launching series of attacks on the CID Boss ever since she invited Ofosu Ampofo to her outfit for interrogations with regards to the series of kidnappings and fire outbreaks in the country.
Hon. Markin urged the NDC to keep mute and rather encourage their National Chairman to honour the CID Boss’s invitation because that will prove whether he is guilty or not.
An invitation letter dated May 7, 2019, written and signed by CID boss was sent to Mr Ampofo on May 7, 2019, saying Mr Ampofo should report to COP Maame Tiwaa on May 9, 2019, at exactly 2 pm for interrogation about the recent kidnappings and fire outbreaks in the country.
In response to the invitation issued by the CID Boss, Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Boamah Otokunor stated on Starr Fm that the invitation is a deliberate action taken by the Ghana Police Service to collaborate with the NPP government in order to destabilize and cause tension in their party.
Mr Otokunor said “We can’t be intimidated and we are sending a clear notice to them that we are treating this letter with the contempt it deserves.
“We are going to impress on our national chairman not to honour the invitation. In fact, when he attempts we are going to stop him… it’s baseless and unconstitutional and we see it as an encroachment on his fundamental human rights”.
