Officials of the South African High Commission have concluded their first round of investigations of the three South African police officers arrested for allegedly training a group of young men on weapon handling among others.

The South African High Commission had asked Ghana's Foreign Ministry to give it access to the men to enable it gain information about their mission in Ghana.

The Commission has subsequently interrogated the three early this morning, with the information gathered being sent to the South African security agencies in Pretoria, Accra-based Joy FM has reported.

The three, 54-year-old Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis (Rtd.), 39-year–old WO/ Denver Dwayhe Naidu (Rtd.) and 45-year-old Captain Mlungiseleli Jokani (Rtd.) were arrested on Sunday March 20, 2016 at El Capitano Hotel in Agona Duakwa in the Central Region.

A Bureau of National Investigations document said “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.”

Some leading members of the ruling National Democratic Congress, including its Deputy general secretary, Koku Anyidoho had subsequently accused the NPP of dealing with mercenaries in the country in order to win power at all cost.

But the NPP said the three do not pose any threat. Deputy Communications Director of the NPP, Perry Okudzeto, told Pulse.com.gh that the three were training security guards for the New Patriotic Party’s presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, and his running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
