BNI detains Akufo-Addo’s photographer, bodyguard
The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), has reportedly detained the photographer and private bodyguard of the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo.
Sources within the party who confirmed the development to Citi News said the two were detained because they refused to fill a “Personality profile” forms at the bureau.
The pair had reportedly accompanied Captain Koda to the BNI on Tuesday, to retrieve some items they collected from his residence some weeks ago.
A search was carried out at his residence following his engagement with the three South African nationals accused of breaching the country’s laws while they were offering security training to the security detail of the NPP Presidential Candidate.
The pair, whose names were only given as Kyeremeh and Malik, were said to have acted as witnesses at the time the BNI took custody of the items from Captain Koda and had to be present at the time of the release.
But the BNI insisted the pair must fill the “Personality Profile” forms, despite an explicit advice from their lawyers not to do so.
