Ofosu-Ampofo officially arrested, charged, granted bail

The CID has charged Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo with four charges of conspiracy to cause harm, assault and rioting.

The National Chairman of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) spent some nine hours with the CID on Monday, 4 March 2019 in connection with a leaked tape containing a voice believed to be his in which he is heard inciting verbal violence against the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission and the Chairperson of the National Peace Council.

Mr Ofosu-Ampofo refused to comment on the tape after it was played for him by the CID. He insisted it was doctored.

He was granted bail in the sum of GHS500,000 with two sureties and is to appear before the CID again on Thursday, 7 March 2019.

Hundreds of the party’s supporters massed up at the CID in solidarity with their Chairman.
