Mr Theophilus Sedofu, a well-built man alleged to be a member of The Hawks, a militia group affiliated to the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has denied being a member of the group.

Although Mr Sedofu has been captured in several pictures wearing a black t-shirt with the inscription "The Hawks" on either side, he said he is not a member of the militia group but an executive member of the NDC in the Ablekuma North Constituency.

Giving his testimony on Thursday, 7 March 2019 before the Justice Emile Short Commission of Inquiry tasked to probe the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence, Mr Sedofu said he only wore the t-shirt after it was given to him as a gift during a unity walk organised by the NDC in the Ashanti Region.

“The t-shirt was given to me during a unity walk in Kumasi. I was directing traffic, the NDC was sharing the t-shirt and they gave me one,” he stated.

He indicated that the pictures circulating online from the Kumasi event shows that he was wearing his own t-shirt underneath ‘The Hawks’-branded one.

Mr Sedofu noted that although he has seen his pictures pop up anytime a search is conducted on The Hawks online, he does not know whom to complain to, hence his silence.

Mr Sedofu became a person of interest to the Commission when it was discovered that he was present at the private residence of the NDC’s parliamentary candidate during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.

He was one of the many individuals arrested by masked National Security operatives during the melee.
