Protégé of embattled Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe Abronye Hopeson Adorye has lashed out at Inspector General of Police Dr. George Akuffo Dampare to stop using Abronye for what he says is clear equalization.
According to him, Madina Member of Parliament Sosu remains a free man which should concern the IGP instead of Abronye.
“That equalization they should stop it. We are building a nation. No one has said if Abronye has done something wrong arrest him. Sosu is still in town has IGP been able to arrest him?” He quizzed.
He revealed that the IGP and his counterpart Criminal Investigation Department boss Ken Yeboah both called Abronye to assure him to only come and give a statement and go only for them to detain him and refuse to grant him bail putting off their phones.
“You can’t please everybody. Every person under the law is entitled to bail. Every offense in Ghana is bailable. You have taken the person’s statement and done everything why did you keep him?” He said in the Asempa interview transcribed by MyNewsGh.com.
“You invited him, he came, and when you are done the person who made them invite him has thrown his phone away. IGP himself called him. CID Boss Ken Yeboah also called him. They said he should just go and write his statement there is nothing. He (Dampare) spoke to Abronye on phone….” he revealed.
“Dampare directed for thing to be brought here. He spoke to Abronye. CID boss also spoke to Abronye. So why [were] are they not picking their calls for him to get bail?” He asked.
“We are calling him and he is not picking. He wants Abronye to sleep inside. Pick the phone and tell us you want to keep him and take him to court. IGP Dampare doesn’t disappoint us. We beg. Now he is not picking. He shouldn’t do that to us, he is our person but where he is going….”
Abronye DC was arrested for claiming former President John Mahama has held a series of meetings with Alqaeda to overthrow the government of Ghana.
He spent a night in police custody before being granted bail.
