The National Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has commended Mr Albert Kan-Dapaah, Minister of National Security, for his intervention following the seizure of his cars by some military personnel and National Security officers.
On Wednesday February 1, 15 armed men dressed in military fatigues, suspected to be army personnel, stormed the private residence of Mr Adams in Tema, and seized all his five vehicles in the company of four alleged National Security officers and personnel from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA).
But Mr Adams has confirmed that the cars have been returned.
Speaking to Accra-based Radio Gold on Thursday, 2 February, Mr Adams said: “I think I must commend the National Security Minister, Mr Kan-Dapaah, for his intervention in this matter. He did call to indicate that it wasn’t something that was sanctioned officially, and, so, they have instructed that they return the vehicles immediately.”
“It is true that he spoke to me and I want to thank him. I think that is the way to go. He has assured that the appropriate punishment will be given to the officer who led that operation without authorisation.”
Meanwhile, former President John Mahama has said the “unprovoked” attacks on members and leaders of the main opposition National Democratic Congress must end.
“The unprovoked attacks on NDC functionaries and supporters are needless and must end. Yesterday, the National Organiser of the NDC's residence was invaded by security men from the seat of Government, the Flagstaff House in his absence, in search of vehicles when they knew very well they were on the wrong path. This must end,” Mr Mahama said in a Facebook post.
