Controversial radio host and social commentator, Kwabena Bobie Ansah has alleged that President Nana Aufo-Addo ordered some national security operatives to storm his Accra residence and arrest him.
Bobie, an unapologetic critic of President Akufo-Addo further alleged that the President directed the security operatives to storm his house and seize his personnel vehicle, which was erroneously believed to be a state vehicle.
According to him, he was waylaid and taken to the Osu Castle by the security operatives for about an hour after which his car was seized with its documents.
Speaking to Accra-based Montie FM after the alleged incident, Bobie said “I bought my car from Erata Motors but if they (security operatives) want to have it as part of their vehicle pool, I’m prepared to leave it with them as part of my contribution to the state.
“If they also want to give the vehicle to Nana Addo’s first daughter Gyankroma to use, it is fine with me because she is also a Ghanaian. I leave it to them,” sarcastically he said.
Narrating what he described as political witch-hunting, Bobie said he saw some well-built people in national security Vehicle around his residence.
“My place is a quiet area and I suspected they were coming for me so I decided to swerve them. However, they approached my security at the gate and said they tipped me off. The national security operatives also said Nana Akufo-Addo asked them to come and arrest me.
“I did not understand why Nana Akufo-Addo will want me arrested. I don’t know whether he wants to listen to my music because he is bored….. The national security operatives also said a complaint was lodged at the police station against me for keeping a state vehicle in my house,” Bobie retorted.
According to him, he later reported at the Police Station but the Police officers there held and dragged him with his legs hanging like an armed robber.
“I told them I am not a government employee and therefore I did not have any state cars with me.
“I asked if supporting John Mahama means you are a government employee. They struggled with me and demanded to have my car documents, which I obliged.
“Thereafter, they took me straight to the Osu Castle and after having their meetings for about an hour, they took me back to my house with the claim that I was keeping state vehicles in my house although I cannot park more than one car in my yard. Yet, they went and searched my house but did not find any vehicles.”
“They seized my car with its documents. Thereafter, a gentleman told me he was in charge of the state vehicles and that he will call me later.
I told them that they could even carry my room furniture if they felt the furniture belonged to the state.
Asked if he has been treated fairly or not, Bobie retorted it was for Ghanaians, President Akufo-Addo and his security operatives to judge.
“My brother I’m telling you let me say this and say it again, we are aware of some imachinations (sic).
We are aware, we know what President Akufo-Addo wants to do, he has only four years to govern and he will do whatever he can to prosecute his political opponents,” Bobie alleged.
