The Ministry of Interior, insists head of New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s security, Captain (retd) Edmund Koda, is a convict.
Despite a rebuttal from Captain Koda’s lawyer, Nana Asante Bediatuo that, his client was acquitted and discharged by a commission of inquiry, deputy Interior minister, maintained this is not true.
Speaking on Joy FM/MultiTv’s news analysis programme Newsfile on Saturday, Mr. Agalga said, “His argument that Captain Koda was never convicted is a palpable falsehood. He [Koda] was convicted and that is why he continued to serve that jail term and ended up breaking jail.”
Mr. Agalga said the Francoise Committee Report does not support Bediatuo’s argument.
Nana Akufo-Addo’s head of security was arrested last week for his involvement in contracting three (3) South African nationals to train close officials of the NPP presidential candidate.
On Monday, March 28, the Interior ministry, released a statement justifying the arrest of Captain Koda.
