11 arrested over burglary at NPP’s headoffice

The police have picked up 11 suspects said to have had a hand in the ransacking of the head office of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Monday dawn, the party’s chairman has disclosed.

Freddie Blay, who is Acting Chairman of the party, told journalists that the party is of the full conviction that someone is behind the crime.

The party’s headoffice was burgled around 1:00am on Monday by six men said to be clad in military uniforms.

Narrating the incident to TV3, George Andah, the party’s parliamentary candidate for Awutu Senya West Constituency, said the burglars carried sacks in which they put their booty.

He said they had locked up the security guards of the party before breaking into the office.

They had also asked the security guards to touch the items in the sack, Mr Andah added, in an apparent attempt to get their finger prints.

“We are convinced that they are a gang of ruffians either sent by some individuals or by some powerful people who want to create an impression that we have problems in our party,” Acting Chairman Freddie Blay said.

He called on the police to investigate the issue.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Armed Forces is reported to have begun investigations that officers of its fold had perpetrated the crime.
