Counsel for embattled NDC National Chairman, Lawyer Victor Kwadwogah Adawudu, is readying himself for a showdown with the police, should the case involving the opposition party's National Chair, Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, end up in court.
Accordig to him, his client still maintains his earlier position that, he (Ampofo) is "innocent" and the contents on the leaked audio "doctored".
Speaking to Kwame Nkrumah Tikese on Okay Fm's "Ade Akye Abia" programme, he pointed out that though he is aware two other national officers of the party, Mr. Sammy Gyamfi and Mr. Kwaku Boahen, alongside the National Chairman have all been charged by the police, "they are yet to receive a court summons".
"We hear their docket has been sent to the Attorney-General for advice. However, for me my clients are innocent and it will have to the police who will prove whether or my clients authored those word in the leaked audio because for us those voice are doctored," Lawyer Adawudu stated.
Peacefmonline.com first reported last week about the decision by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to charge the NDC leading members with conspiracy to commit crime, to wit, kidnapping, and conspiracy to commit crime, to wit, threat of harm.
The docket on the case has meanwhile been sent to the Attorney General (AG) for advice and further action.
The CID on Wednesday, February 27 extended an invitation to Mr Ampofo over the leaked tape in which he is allegedly heard planning to use a series of politically motivated kidnappings ahead of polls planned for 2020.
On the said tape, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) chairman was also heard telling party communicators to "take the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, to the cleaners," an allegation he, Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has denied.
