Former General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, has accused the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) of doing the bidding of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the issue of the arrest of three South African ex-police officers in the Central Region.
According to him, the arrest of the three at the EL-Capitano Hotel and their subsequent deportation was just for propaganda purposes.
The three were brought in to train 15 young men serving as bodyguards, drivers and photographers for the NPP flagbearer, his running mate and their wives, but after major fanfare and one appearance in court, Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis (retd), 54; Warrant Officer Denver Dwayhe, 33, and Captain Mlungiseli Jokani, 45 were huriedly deported.
The BNI argued that their operations were unhealthy to the security of the state.
But the former NPP scribe, popularly known as Sir John is candalised by the recent actions of the national security outfit.
“The BNI is really working for the NDC. I think they are now propaganda wing for the NDC because I find it hard to understand why they allowed the two Gitmo terrorists to walk freely in this country and go after innocent people they claim are terrorists” he asserted.
"NDC will lose and so the BNI should not waste their time following them and paying attention to their propaganda. These SA people are not terrorists, but rather it was a mere propaganda from the NDC,” he insisted.
