The largest opposition, National Democratic Congress (NDC) has stated that the the arrest of the suspects who kidnapped the Canadian girls have vindicated the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
Mark Oliver Kevor, a member of the Communication team of the NDC stated when the two foreign nationals were freed with the help of Canadian security experts.
The national Chair of the NDC, Ofosu Ampofo was allegedly heard on a leaked tape indicating how they were going to make the ruling government unpopular through kidnapping.
The police, therefore, decided to invite him for questioning.
Through a statement, they said: "the Criminal Investigation Department is investigating various acts of kidnapping and causing unlawful damage, in which credible and actionable intelligence makes Mr. Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), a suspect"
This statement also came after two Canadian girls were kidnapped in Kumasi, adding to other kidnapped cases in the country. On Wednesday, the girls were found and 8 suspects were arrested according to the Ministry of Information.
Speaking on Peace FM morning show 'Kokrokoo', Thursday, Mark Oliver said: "the NDC chairman has been vindicated following the arrest of the suspects…"
He further added that "he’s just being persecuted. There is nothing linking him to any kidnapping case…if even there is anything is being manufactured by government and I know in their own sober mood they will know it is not fair…nothing exists. It is their own creation. It’s a waste of time, national resources…we know the court will also vindicate him"
