The National Security Advisor, Alhaji Baba Kamara confirmed ordering the arrest of the managing director of the quarry company, Dr. Ayo Ani, for allegedly taking pictures of vehicles belonging to the NDC.
The National Security Advisor, Alhaji Baba Kamara confirmed ordering the arrest of the managing director of the quarry company, Dr. Ayo Ani.
According to him, it was wrong for Dr Ani to take pictures of vehicles parked in his (Kamara’s) warehouse on the Spintex Road, circulate them on social media, and later accuse him (Kamara) of rebranding the vehicles meant for the NCCE.
The Marbles and Granites boss has subsequently denied the accusations.
Touching on the subject matter, the director of communications for the NPP, Nana Akomea, said the action of Mr. Kamara is rather unfortunate, as "he is taking Ghana back to the regime of settling civil disputes through the use of the coercive tools of the criminal justice system.”
“The intimidation and abuse of power by President Mahama’s national security advisor has come into play in this matter. The arrest of those alleged to have taken the pictures was ordered by Baba Kamara who is a national security advisor at the office of the President," Mr. Akomea said at a press conference on Tuesday.
“If Mr. Kamara believed that the privacy of his property had been violated, his cause of action should have been a civil one. By ordering the BNI to arrest the people, Mr Kamara stands accused of using his official position to coerce and abuse his neighbours," Mr. Akomea added.
