Blay, Awuku, NPP Apparatchiks 'controlling' police service – Sammy Gyamfi claims
The National Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress [NDC], Sammy Gyamfi claim to have “facts” and “evidences” that the Police Service is being controlled by some key members of the ruling New Patriotic Party [NPP].
He was emphatic that the Police Service is “not independent” and “only” act when directed by some gurus within the ‘Elephant’ fraternity to frustrate leadership of the NDC.
“Bryan Acheampong, Sammy Awuku, Freddie Blay, John Boadu are the ones giving instruction to the Police to victimize the NDC from their party headquarters,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.
Sammy Gyamfi made these allegations after the National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, was slapped with new charges by the Criminal Investigation Department [CID] of the Ghana Police Service over his infamous leaked tape scandal.
Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo and two other executive members of the NDC – National Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi and his deputy, Kwaku Boahen, were initially charged with conspiracy to commit crime, to wit, kidnapping, and threat of harm.
But those charges, according to a member of the NDC’s legal team, Abraham Amaliba, were dropped Tuesday, April 10, and new charges preferred.
Mr. Amaliba said the new charges as preferred against the NDC Chairman are now conspiracy to cause harm and assault on a Public Officer.
He said that the new charges leveled against his clients are not borne out of good faith, but merely an attempt by the Police to distract the work of the NDC Chairman.
