The Bureau of National Investigations, BNI has released the head of security for the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Capt. Edmund Koda.

This comes after concerns from Lawyer of Capt. Koda and other NPP supporters that the continuous detention of Capt. Koda who had been granted bail by the High Court, was illegal.

Capt Koda was arrested on Friday after being implicated in the case involving the three former South African ex-police officers who were arrested last week for allegedly training the private security of the NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo.

The BNI arrested the three ex-police officers, Major Ahmed Shaik (retd), 54; Warrant Officer Denver Dwahye, 33, and Captain Mlungiseli Jokani, 45, last Sunday, March 20 in the Agona East of the Central region for "training fifteen young men in various military drills, including unarmed combat, weapon handling, VIP protection techniques and rapid response maneuvers”.

The BNI had argued that their activities might pose a security threat to the country. The three were subsequently charged with conspiracy to commit crime and unlawful training.

Meanwhile, the New Patriotic Party is demanding the immediate release of three South Africans.

Addressing a press conference, the party said the three are being held in unlawful custody by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).

Hundreds of angry supporters of the New Patriotic Party had massed up at the party headquarters on Monday to protest the continued detention of the three South Africans and Capt. Koda.

With the three South Africans still in BNI custody, the party has threatened to sue the BNI for contempt and disregard of a court ruling which ordered for the release of the three South Africans on bail.
