They were arrested for allegedly training 15 young men in various security drill and rapid response maneuvers, weapon handling
BNI documents available to the media say "The trio, all ex-police officers were engaged in training fifteen young men in various military drills, including unarmed combat, weapon handling, VIP protection techniques and rapid response maneuvers."
The BNI document stated that "Strangely, however, when the Police and BNI operatives went to the hotel to ascertain their mission they were refused entry by the trainees. However, the security operatives finally entered the place and conducted a search on them. Surprisingly, a comprehensive report on the operations of Superlock Technologies Ltd (STL) was found in the possession of Hazis. The document contained a detailed profile of all the workers of STL, past and present and went on to identify key staff members, giving an assessment of their strengths and vulnerabilities with the view to possibly compromising them so as to get them commit acts that will tend to favour a particular party in the 2016 elections, using the STL security infrastructure. Images of all workers of STL were also contained in the document."
The suspects according to BNI claim they are security management consultants, with Hazis disclosing that he was part of Nana Akufo-Addo’s security detail during the 2012 elections.
The ex-servicemen were conducting the security drills under the guise of training personnel for Delta Force Security, owned by Capt Kwesi Acquah (Rtd) who also mans the hotel.
