The Bureau of National Investigations has charged the Deputy Executive Director of pro-NPP think tank Danquah Institute with conspiracy to commit crime.
Nana Attobrah Quaicoe was invited and interrogated by the BNI on Monday, April 4 on his role in bringing the three South African nationals to train the security detail of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
Three South African ex-cops Major Chris Hazis (RTD), Warrant Officer Denver Dwayhe and Captain Mlungiseli Jokani were arrested for training private security personnel of the Flagbearer and his running mate.
They were charged with conspiracy to commit crime and unlawful training but the state dropped the charge against them after detaining them for some days. They were deported on Tuesday, March 29.
According to Nana Attobrah Quaicoe, one of the three deported ex-cops was invited by the Danquah Institute in December.
“But the BNI is trying to draw a connection between that visit and their presence subsequently in March but then there is no connection between the two,” he told Joy News.
He said he was told to report to the BNI office Tuesday and he had done that already.
He expressed disappointment in the BNI for deporting the ex-cops before inviting him and charging him.
“Ï am really surprised…I am really surprised, if they were interested in pursuing the matter to its logical conclusion I guess they should have made it possible for the guys (Ex cops) to be around for them to complete their investigation,” Nana Attobrah added.
