11 September 2012

The National Democratic Congress (NDC), in Accra has nabbed a man suspected as being responsible for the leaked Yaw Boateng Gyan Scandalous tape.




Last Friday, NDC operatives, incensed by the outrage that has greeted the infamous NDC National Organiser’s tape in which he promised to infiltrate the National Security apparatus with party foot soldiers, arrested a member suspected to be responsible for the leakage at the party headquarters.

The suspect, a member of the party was dragged to the Nima Police station, but the police had to release him for want of charges.

According to sources at the police station, the police officers were confused as to what charges to prefer against Michael Amankwah who was given a “citizen’s arrest by NDC members on a mere suspicion.

The arrest follows days of painstaking search for the mole responsible for leaking the telltale tape to the Ghanaian public and now the source of unquantifiable embarrassment to the party.

Michel Amankwah, according to an anonymous source both within the police and the NDC headquarters was nabbed at the party headquarters and taken to the Nima Police Station by a certain Ferkeh on Friday and handed over to the police officers at the station.

Being a case with national security implications, a counter non-commissioned officer (NCO) referred the matter to the Divisional Commander, Daily Guide gathered. The Divisional Commander was said to have handed over the case to the District Commander.

At the time of filing this report our source informed as that the police were unable to prefer any charge against Michael Amankwah, a suggestion that the matter would hit a cul-de-sac.

The suspect, according to our source, was detained overnight and when the District Commander for Nima, Aduhene Banieh, turned up on Saturday, he asked that he be released on bail since he could not be charged with any offence.

The Nima Police have refused to corroborate or deny the story, obviously scared to be dragged into the minefield of political stories involving the ruling party.

A source there however confirmed the story but asked for anonymity since according to him, this was an internal NDC matter “and we would not want to be dragged into it”.

It is not known how the NDC would handle the matter, given the legal challenges debarring them from going beyond where it has reached now, since Michael Amankwah has not been charged. Sources said Amankwah was a wrong person and that the person who wired the meeting venue was still a bonafide member of the NDC walking freely at the party headquarters.

Guests of Yaw Boateng Gyan, on the day he made the subversive disclosure and as captured in the telltale tape, until the arrest of suspect Michael Amankwah, have been on tenterhooks not knowing which of them would be suspected of being responsible for the leakage.
