The BNI arrested the three ex-police officers 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.

Nana Asante Bediatuo told Accra-based Citi FM that he will be forced to resort to the law court to force the BNI to produce his client.

Captain Koda is alleged to have invited the three South Africans who have since been granted bail but are currently in the custody of the BNI.

He was reportedly charged with conspiracy to commit crime and unlawful training but granted bail on Wednesday after the BNI took his statement.

His case was subsequently dropped by the state, but he is still being held in BNI custody after his apparent release.
