The National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, has been charged with three counts and not four as reported by the media, DSP Juliana Obeng, National Public Relations Officer of the Criminal Investigative Department (CID) of the Ghana Police has said.

Initial reports said Mr Ofosu-Ampofo was charged with threat of harm, conspiracy to harm, rioting and assault of a public official.

DSP Juliana Obeng, however, told Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don) on Tuesday, 5 March 2019 that: “Three charges were levelled against him, not four. The assault of a public official was not part of the charges.”

The National Chairman of the main opposition 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 to 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 headquarters in solidarity with their Chairman.
