A planned meeting between the National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo and the police over the leaked audio failed to take place.
According to sources, Mr Ofosu-Ampofo was yet to receive a formal invitation letter from the Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) as of Thursday morning.
The CID had asked Mr Ofosu-Ampofo who has come under fire over comments he allegedly made in the secret recording to report at the headquarters at 10am on Thursday.
In interview with Peace FM’s reporter, Yaw Obeng Manu who was at the CID headquarters, journalists from various media houses waited at vantage points with their cameras to capture Mr Ofosu-Ampofo’s arrival at the CID headquarters on Thursday morning, but it never saw the light of day.
Operation vehicles of the Formed Police Unit (FPU) including water cannons were seen positioned at vantage points with police personnel in full gears ready for any operational duties at the entrance of the CID headquarters.
However, three hours after the scheduled meeting, there was still no show amidst suggestions that Mr Ofosu-Ampofo has decided not to honour the police invitation.
Two members of the NDC legal team, Mr Victor K. Adawudu and Abraham Amaliba visited the CID headquarters to meet top police officers.
After the closed-door meeting, the lawyers told journalists who were waiting outside that, Mr Ofosu-Ampofo was yet to receive the invitation letter and that, they were there to verify from the police if they had indeed invited Mr Ofosu-Ampofo following information they had picked from various media houses.
The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says Chairman Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo has not received any official invitation from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service.
According to the National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, the unprofessionalism and bias nature of the Ghana Police must stop.
Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ programme, he maintained that the police has not contacted the National Chairman and that they find it strange such information is circulating in the media.
“I am putting it on record that our Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo has not received any letter from the CID department,” he said.
He therefore called on the media to be fair in their news reportage and stop being bias and playing double standards.
