The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has released vehicles seized from the residents of the National Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams.
According to reports, he provided all the documentations regarding the ownership of the five vehicles to the police during investigations,
Samson Lardy Ayenini, lawyer for the NDC National Organiser revealed yesterday.
Five vehicles – two Toyota Land Cruiser V8s with registration numbers GS 7451-12 and GN 7796-16 – and three Nissan Hard Body pick-ups with registration numbers GM 842-16, GM 823-16 and GM 846-16, were seized from his Golf City area home near Tema last month.
After thorough investigations by the CID, Samson Lardy Ayenini said it emerged that his client paid the necessary duties for all the vehicles.
He bemoaned how the people who went for the vehicles did not follow due process but rather invaded the privacy of his client just for cheap political points.
As a way to get his damaged reputation repaired, Samson said Adams has ordered him to sue his accusers in court for redress.
This, he believed would serve as a deterrent to other hoodlums who are planning to hound members of the opposition NDC alleged to have ‘stolen’ state assets.
“Ghana is not a jungle or banana republic; it is a democracy of the rule of law so they should have used legal means to deal with people,” he added.
