Quaicoe said he saw nothing wrong with inviting Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis to lecture DI on security issues, adding that no law was breached by the invitation.

“His background is security and if we invite him to come and talk about security what is wrong with that? He was our guest so he came to share his insight with us. What is wrong in inviting him [Hazis and his friends] to Ghana, if there is any law breached by inviting Hazis into the country then let’s look at that law,” he told Accra based Citi FM.

He argued that Hazis has a security background and that security is a crucial component of Ghana’s democracy therefore inviting him to lecture on security and democracy is not out of place.

The BNI last month arrested three former South African Police Officers for allegedly training the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) private security men on weapon handling among others

The three are; 54-year-old Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis (Rtd.), 39-year–old WO/ Denver Dwayhe Naidu (Rtd.) and 45-year-old Captain Mlungiseleli Jokani (Rtd.).

The Offices of DI were raided after the arrest of three South Africans by security officials suspected to be BNI.

The BNI however denied it carried out the raid.
