NDC calls for probe over arms discovery at NPP headquarters

According to the party's General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the Inspector General of Police must come clear on the alleged arms retrieved.


The National Democratic Congress has called for an investigations into the discovery of arms at the headquarters of the New Patriotic Party some weeks ago.

According to the General Secretary of the NDC Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the Inspector General of Police must come clear on the alleged arms retrieved.

Speaking to the party's students’ network in Cape Coast (TEIN) in the Central region on Monday, Asiedu Nketia urged the police to make known the extent of their investigation because the arms could possibly be a source of violence in the country.


"We heard that there were guns that were retrieved at a party headquarters, the Police went in to do some arrests but quickly our brothers have tried to shift the argument from answering the question as to why a party headquarters has be an amoury and focusing on the people who came there whether they were sent by NDC or whoever".

He noted that "We want to demand from the IGP that the nation needs to know whether there were arms retrieved from the party headquarters, find out how those arms got there and what the intentions of the arms were because if it happens that a major opposition can be keeping arms in its headquarters then nobody can guarantee the safety of this nation.

"Because they have a following and if the purpose is for them to distribute the arms to their followers to create mayhem in the country…should we sit and keep quiet."

"It is something we want answers to, let us know the nature of arms retrieved at the NPP headquarters, who owns them and what they were doing there," he added.
