NDC will continue to politicize arrest of kidnappers – Asiedu Nketia

By on

General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has emphasized that the NDC will continue to politicize arrest of the Canadian kidnappers.

He says the politicization of criminals was started by the NPP so why should they (NDC) stop when the criminals involved are known NPP Delta Force members.

Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ programme, he explained that the New Patriotic Party has recruited Delta Force members into the security agencies which is not good for the country’s security.

“The political parties are fighting to end political vigilantism but you have a government who keeps politicizing everything and even branding the NDC’s National Chairman as a criminal,” he said.

“Until the NPP stops the politicization of National issues, we will also continue to politicize everything,” he added.

Eight persons have since been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of the two Canadian women at Ahodwo, Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

The suspects include five Ghanaians and three Nigerians.

 They were arrested on Wednesday morning after an operation which freed the two women who were kidnapped last week Tuesday.

The Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, made this known at a press conference in Accra last week.
