Kwesi Pratt Jnr., Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, has condemned the forceful seizure of vehicles belonging to Kofi Adams, NDC National Organizer.

Kofi Adams' five cars have been reportedly seized by some military personnel and national security officers.

Fifteen armed men clad in military attire were said to have stormed the private residence of the NDC capo and made away with the five vehicles.

The vehicles comprising three pick-ups and two Land Cruisers were seized from Mr. Adams on account that they belong to the State.

A clearly peeved Mr. Adams expressed his frustration on Asempa FM after the incident, asking "why should this animalistic behaviour go on?"

Contributing to a panel on Peace FM's Kokrokoo Friday regarding the issue, Kwesi Pratt urged State authorities to hold the armed men and any individual involved in the illegal operation, responsible for their own actions.

He stated that no individual must exercise the right to attack Mr. Adams in his residence simply because he allegedly has in his possessions state property.

According to him, the issue should be dealt with holistically without any politics.

“They should be individually held accountable. If we don’t do that, the truth of the matter will disappear. If we don’t do that, we will politicize it.”

Mr. Pratt said such actions should not be encouraged because it affects the fabric of the economy.

Also addressing the issue on Kokrokoo, Former MP for La Dadekotopon, Nii Amarsah Namoale expressed disappointment in the current administration for adopting a "rambo style" action to seize the vehicles from Mr. Adams.

He advised the government to allow room for rule of law to operate.

To him, the culture where a government goes on a manhunt without any regulations may spark needless agitations.

He said because a government wants to sack people from office, it might sometimes not do due diligence and so the victims tend to sue the government especially when their contracts expires after they're laid off.

He, therefore, advised Nana Addo's government to work within the remits of the country's laws.
