There was no order from above in Naa Koryoo’s arrest – Police to Asiedu Nketia

The Ghana Police Service has denied allegations by the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, that senior police officials, including the Accra Regional Police Commander, CID Director-General, and Inspector-General of Police, claimed that the arrest of three individuals with a pump-action gun with ammunition at Ofaakor was done on the orders of higher authorities.

According to the Police, it has in its possession a video of Asiedu Nketia alleging that some seniors in the police have told him the arrest was based on an order from above.

The police in a statement described Asiedu Nketia’s allegations as “false and baseless,” adding that arrest was a legitimate enforcement of the law, without any external influence.

The Police added that no senior officer mentioned by Asiedu Nketia made any such statements.

“We wish to emphasize that all three suspects were arrested when a Pump Action gun with four rounds of ammunition was found in their vehicle at the offices of the Electoral Commission at Ofaakor in the Awutu Senya East constituency of the Central region. They have subsequently been cautioned and granted bail,”
