The National Chairman of the largest opposition party the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Samuel Ofosu Ampfo has been released after he was detained for five hours on Tuesday June 11 2019.

The gadgets of Mr Ampofo has however been seized by the police for investigation after a warrant was granted for his arrest and is expected to report on Thursday June 13.

His home was also searched by police but it as yet unclear why the warrant was issued for his arrest.

But Mr Ofosu Ampofo last month refused to honor an invitation to report to the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to assist in investigations into the recent spate of kidnappings and rson in the country.

According to the earlier invitation, some suspects had named Mr. Ofosu Ampofo during police interrogations.

He is currently on trial for allegedly inciting some of his party’s supporters towards violent acts in apparent response to the violence during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.

He was heard on a leaked recording allegedly sanctioning verbal attacks on some public officers like the Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson and the National Peace Council Chairperson.

The NDC Chair is facing charges of conspiracy to cause harm and assault on a public officer.
