The National Coordinator of the Friends of Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings (FONKAR), Saint Osei says the group’s Operations Director, Ernest Owusu Bempah, arrested on Wednesday after alleging that First Lady Ernestina Naadu Mills received $5 million from the Woyome judgment debt payments, is going through torture at the Greater Accra regional offices of the Bureau of National Investigations.

After a fruitless search for Owusu Bempah Thursday, Saint Osei tells Joy FM they saw him at about 6:00 pm at the Accra BNI offices where he looked deformed and tortured. He is also on a hunger strike and according to Osei, Bempah has a lot tell about the treatment he has had to go through.

Bempah was largely expected to be arraigned before court Thursday, to answer to the charge of publishing false information with the intent to cause fear and panic, however after waiting the entire day and searching all the courts, his lawyers said they could not trace him.

Saint Osei who spoke on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show, said “Actually yesterday we were able to see Owusu Bempah at the Regional office of the Bureau of National Investigations. We met him around six and I must say I was really sad the kind of torture Owusu Bempah is going through at the BNI. At this juncture we want to find out who actually is the complainant?”

Asked what he meant by torture, Saint Osei said Bempah had suffered psychological torture which showed in looks but would prefer that Bempah tells his own story.

He could not confirm any physical torture but said he certainly looked deformed.

Confirming Bempah’s hunger strike, Saint Osei said “…he’s not eaten anything because he doesn’t know what is going to happen to him. From the look of things if you ask the CID they tell you it’s in the hands of the BNI, if you ask the BNI they tell you ‘order from above, you know, this morning I really thank God for having this platform, we want to call on the Human Rights to come into this matter because I don’t think Owusu Bempah is a criminal and I don’t think he’s killed anybody in this country so if by the statement he made he is going through this kind of thing, I don’t know what will happen to all of us, in FONKAR and any other Ghanaian. I believe if we say we are applying the law, we should do it well.”

He said even lawyers for Owusu Bempah are being denied access to him.
