Meanwhile, the three ex-Police officers are still in BNI custody undergoing interrogation.

The NPP has subsequently condemned the BNI's continued detention of the three ex-police officers for questioning.

The party had argued that the three were only in Ghana to train security guards for the New Patriotic Party’s presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, and his running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and that they posed no threat.
