The Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, DCOP Ayensu Opare Addo who was forcefully removed from office has asked the general public to ignore the claims made against him by the National Security Coordinator, Major General Francis Adu Amanfo (retd).
Major General Francis Adu Amanfo (retd) had said that DCOP Ayensu Opare Addo’s contract has expired therefore he had no business being in office.
Major General Francis Adu Amanfo (retd) further stated that DCOP Opare Addo was not handcuffed as was earlier reported in a section of the media.
“He rather called Police reinforcement and got the team that went to to mitigate the event in Kumasi and they were handcuffed. It was the team from Accra that was handcuffed, Opare Addo wasn’t handcuffed.
“He rather called the Police commander to come and they came and arrested the team that we have sent from Accra
“He had no locus to be in the office because a new officer had been appointed and he should have handed over to the officer and he says he won’t hand over. So that is why a team was sent from Accra to go and mitigate and facilitate the handing and taking over process,” he added.
“Do you know what? Bottom line of all of this is that Opare Addo had a contract with National Security and I had not even assumed office and for four years he was the Regional liaison for the National Security.
“His contract expired, and it was not renewed. I understand that it wasn’t renewed because of non-performance and his own criminal activities,” he journalists on Tuesday May 18.
But reacting to these comments, DCOP Opare Addo said“He [National Security Boss] is making those propositions, so he should come out with his findings. My allegations are not vicious. Forget about him, and I am not worried about him. I know the guys who came to my office.”
“They are Delta Force members that I know by face and names. He said I have been in office for years, so clearly, he doesn’t know what he is saying,” he told Citi.
