Scores of supporters of the opposition New Patriotic Party have gathered at the Nima residence of their flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo over fears that the house will be raided by supposed officials of the BNI.
The development comes hours after some unkown individuals allegedly raided the house of Akufo-Addo’s head of security Captain (rtd) Koda and the office of the party’s deputy communications director Perry Okudzeto.
Uneasiness has existed between the NPP and the BNI following the arrest of the three ex-South African police officers who are in Ghana at the behest of the NPP. The party claims the trio are in the country to train their internal security personnel ahead of the 2016 elections.
But the State argues that their presence is in violation of the country’s laws. They were arraigned before the court Thursday and have been granted bail but the BNI has refused to release them.
The NPP has said it has intelligence suggesting that President John Mahama and ruling NDC are planning to harm their standard bearer before the November polls.
