National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, has still not been attended to by the CID since his arrival at the premises some four hours ago.

Ofosu-Ampofo arrived at the CID Headquarters with his lawyers and some NDC executives around 8:30am but no show yet by the security heads.

Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Boamah Otokonor, has expressed great worry over the situation adding that executives may not be able to contain party members who keep trooping in in their numbers.

The party's National Women's Organizer, Dr Hannah Bissiw, expressed similar sentiments saying that tension is brewing among party faithful who are uncomfortable with the long hours of waiting.

"I had to come out to talk to them. People went to work believing that this is something that he will just go and talk because we as a party stand that it (leaked audio) was doctored. People are out there and they are calling saying they don't know what is happening. Once they start coming, they start building tension which is unnecessary."

She was nonetheless adamant that both the executives and members will still hang around until the Chairman comes out.

"I'm not going to ask them to go we are all here. We've stepped down every activity of ours because our head which is the Chairman has been invited. If you cut off the head of an animal, it's no more an animal. And so we are still here. Any NDC who wants to come is free to come," she said.

She argued that if indeed the interrogation was that important to the CID, they could have made the process faster and then called it a day.

The Police are trying their best to calm the supporters who are threatening to invade the CID headquarters.
