Police investigator with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Sevice, Detective Chief Inspector Bernard Berko told Accra High Court that forensic analysis has been carried out on a leaked tape reported to be the voice of Chairman for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
The mentioned politician, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo together with a member of the NDC’s communications team, Kwaku Boahen have now been by state prosecutors of plotting to undertake series of criminal activities targeted at EC Chairperson, Jean Mensa and others including National Security operatives.
So far, the allegations laid against them have been denied by the two politicians Kwaku Boahen and Samuel Ofosu Ampofo. State prosecutors on Friday told an Accra High Court that a reputable forensics institution had analysed the audio but Kwaku Boahen and Samuel Ofosu Ampofo claim the audio has been doctored.
Detective Chief Inspector Berko informed the court that, the leaked tape was obtained from Accra-based radio station Adom FM.
A recording of an interview Kwaku Boahen granted by Accra-based radio station Adom FM was also obtained. He revealed that the police confronted Kwaku Boahen and Samuel Ofosu Ampofo with the tapes but aside from describing them as doctored, they went ahead to reinstate their rights to remain silent.
Mr. Ampofo continued saying, after the police interrogation, addressed party supporters at the CID Headquarters. He said the police obtained a recording of that address and handed it together with the leaked tape to the Israel Forensics Institute for analysis.
In only about 15 minutesplaying this acclaimed evidence, Director of Public Prosecution Yvonne Attakora Obuobisa said a wrong sound file has been given to the court. “The audio does not capture the entire recording.” She added.
The case has therefore been adjourned based on the orders speculations of DOP Yvonne Attakora Obuobisa after Justice Samuel Asiedu granted the request, adjourning proceedings to November 19.
More about the Ofosu Ampofo leaked tape will be communicated.
