Over some few days the country has witnessed some arson attacks on some major markets in the country. The Kantamanto and Kaneshie markets has seen fire outbreaks and this has created so much controversy over these fire burns just after the conclusion of the 2020 elections.
Earlier today news broke out that the personal driver of Peter Boamah Otokunor, Deputy General Secretary of the NDC had been picked up by the police. According to rumors he was picked up on claims of being connected to arson attacks. Information was scanty then so not much could be verified.
This afternoon, December 21, 2020 the lawyer for Eric Adoglah, the driver of Peter Otokunor was in the studios of Asempa FM on ‘Ekosii Sen’ to shed lights on the case. He opened up on the case so far. Lawyer Kojogah Adawudu alleged he had received intelligence that his client was being tortured.
“My client was approached this morning by people who claim to be from the BNI. I had to go to their office to see my client. I was asked to seek assistance from HS 23 when I got to the BNI office. I was told that the person was not around. So i had to wait for more than an hour and yet I was unable to meet my client. I won’t come and lie here.” He fumed
“I then asked the secretary if there was something I could do. I was told that without the head of HS 23 there was nothing I can do.”
When asked of the next step this was what he said, “After 48 hours we can go to court. I can’t file Habeas Corpus because it will take a procedure which is more than 48 hours. Egyapa Mercer cannot tell me to go to court. The law is there, but as a lawyer you need to know the right approach. I am convinced that my client is with the BNI.”
According to lawyer Adawudu, there was nothing to prove that his client is guilty. He told Osei Bonsu that the rumors linking his client to arson attacks should be treated with contempt.
