Captain Edmund Koda (rtd), head of the private security detail for the New Patriotic Party flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo, has argued that the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) was wrong in detaining two of the flagbearer’s men.

The pair, Kwadwo Kyeremeh and Malik Neequaye, had accompanied Captain Koda, head of Nana Akufo-Addo’s security detail, on Tuesday afternoon to the offices of the BNI, where items taken from the residence of Captain Koda were to be returned to him.

The pair were said to have acted as witnesses at the time the BNI took custody of the items from Captain Koda and had to be present at the time of the release.

The duo were detained for refusing to fill ‘Personality Profile’ forms when ordered to do so by the BNI. They were later released around midnight after being locked up for a few hours.

In an interview on Accra-based Joy FM, Captain Koda said “There is no law [in Ghana], which requires anybody walking on the streets, taken as a witness, to give his profile. In other countries, policemen can stop you and ask for your identification card.”

He added that since he had already been profiled, there was no need for the BNI to have arrested Nana Addo's photographer and bodyguard, who just acted as witnesses.
