CID has ‘grilled’ me over my ‘we will beat you mercilessly’ comment

Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) , Nana Obiri Boahen has revealed that he was invited for questioning by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) contrary to claims by Sam George and some members of the National Democratic Congress(NDC).

Some members of the NDC addressing the media after Bernard Mornah was questioned by the Criminal Investigation Department(CID) for comments which were purportedly threatening for officials of the Electoral Commission(EC) expressed disgust at the fact that Nana Obiri Boahen made more damning comments but was not invited for questioning.

But speaking to Accra-based Angel FM monitored by, Nana Obiri Boahen noted that current crop of NDC’s leading members are not current and speak based not on facts but on hearsay.

He said the NDC is a confused political party that does not research and after three elections in Ghana, the political party will fade off because of the kind of people they elect to lead them and the kind of vision they have.

Nana Obiri Boahen indicated that on May 28, he was invited by the CID of the Ghana Police Service for questioning on his some unprintable comments he made on Dadi FM with regards to the compilation of a new voters register.

” On Thursday, I went to the Police CID after I received a letter written to me by Tweneboah. When I got to the CID office, I was directed to one Gyebi and I was made to fill a form after which I was referred to some CID personnel who told me I’m a suspect of which I agreed. They went through the usual processes. People are not aware of my questioning because unlike the noisy Bernard Monah and other NDC guys who seek attention, I don’t need that kind of attention. For me, I don’t make ugly noise. A versatile in politics like me Obiri Boahene when I have been invited by the Police I don’t need to go with the media.”

“When I went to the Police Headquarters, we signed papers and I was bailed. I was interrogated by six CID officials and some officials of Interpol were even present during my interrogation. The condition for my bail was GHC200,000 and one surety which I was able to meet on the said day. I’m matured in politics so I’m not an attention seeker like Bernard Mornah and Kofi Boahene who want the world to hear of them now but for me, I’m matured in politics and I’m not seeking any attention.”
