National Security Advisor, Alhaji Baba Kamara, has confirmed to Joy News he ordered the arrest of the managing director of quarry company Marbles and Granites.
Alhaji Kamara told Joy News’ Seth Kwame Boateng that the yard on which the Mahindra cars were on is his property and it was not right for Dr. Edmund Ayo Ani to take any pictures, make them viral and accuse him of rebranding National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) pick-up 4X4 trucks as National Democratic Congress (NDC) campaign vehicles.
He thinks it is wrong for Dr. Edmund Ayo Ani to just get up, look into somebody’s yard and take pictures.
Alhaji Kamara questions what if the publication of the pictures had compromised his security.
The National Security Advisor has hinted that on Monday, he will drag Dr. Ayo Ani before the court to explain why he took those pictures.
Also, he would want an explanation from the MD on where he got the information that the cars are NCCE property which has been branded in NDC clours.
The BNI on Friday picked up Dr. Ayo Ani in connection with pictures taken showing vehicles allegedly meant for the NCCE being branded with NDC colours.
Nana Adjei Baffuor, lawyer of the MD confirmed to Joy FM’s Newsfile programme Saturday that their client Dr. Ani and two other security men were arrested while he was at work.
They were picked up by personnel from the Police SWAT team and taken to the Cantoments Police Station.
Dr. Ayo Ani is being accused of leaking some pictures, his lawyer says.
The pictures which have gone viral on social media shows at least 50 Mahindra 4×4 vehicles being sprayed in NDC colours at a mechanic shop near his office on the Spintex Road.
This development has sparked another round of what some view is an abuse of office and incumbency ahead of the general elections in November 2016.
