NPP got my driver arrested to divert attention— Otokunor claims
Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor has accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for ordering National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) to arrest his driver to divert attention.
According to him, his driver is innocent from the accusations and there was nothing that the government can do to restrain his party from seeking justice to the 2020 General Elections result.
His driver, Eric Adogla was arrested on Monday, for allegedly being the brain behind the recent fire outbreaks in markets.
Mr Otokunor explained in an interview that the arrest was to divert attention from the NDC’s protests happening across the country to challenge the election results.
He noted that his driver was released today, and has described the arrest as illegal.
“The NPP arrested my driver to divert attention from the critical issues of our resistance. They want the critical issue of our protest and the critical issue of our fight to protect democracy and the sovereignty of this country to be ignored.”
They did not find anything on him and no charges have been leveled against him. I think that this is one of the few things the NPP are doing to divert attention,” Otokunor said.
He however accused the NPP of being behind the recent market fires as a way of courting public disquiet for the NDC.
“I heard the General Secretary of the NPP issue a frivolous and childish statement that the NDC that our party is involved in fires. They know what exactly they are doing. They are using that to create some form of public disquiet and public dislike for the NDC and that has certainly failed. We would not go that low,” Mr Otokunor added.
