The National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo has been picked up by the police, Graphic Online has gathered.
He was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Accra and has since been sent to his house for a search as part of police investigations, Graphic Online gathers.
The police is yet to officially speak on the arrest but information gathered indicates the move is in relation to the recent kidnappings in Ghana.
The arrest followed Ofosu-Ampofo’s refusal to honour 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 arson in Ghana.
A suspect is reported to have accused the NDC chairman of being behind the crimes, a situation which informed the police to invite him for questioning.
Consequently, the party through a statement issued by Kakra Essamuah, its Director of Communications urged its supporters to expect the arrest.
Meanwhile, some NDC party members have gathered at the police headquarters, waiting for Ofosu-Ampofo’s return to the CID headquarters after the police have searched his house.
