Police release seized Kofi Adams vehicles, say they are not state-owned


The Ghana Police Service says after completing its investigations on the ownership of some five seized vehicles said to belong to Kofi Adams, they have concluded the vehicles are not state-owned as purported.

It has, therefore, released the vehicle to the National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Thursday.

Lead counsel for Mr Adams, Samson Lardy Anyenini says the content of their letter to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Apeatu and others who matter remains relevant as their instructions were clear.

He said the evidence he saw before taking the case is what has verdict his client to have the seized vehicles returned.

Sometime last week, Mr Anyenini challenged the state to arrest and prosecute his client if they think he stole the vehicles from the state.

He described the police’s continuous detention of Kofi Adams vehicles which are said to have been stolen from the state is the most lawless act by the state.

“It ought to be made clear that our client is not a criminal in any criminal process, we are unaware of any judicial or quasi-judicial process that is ongoing for which the said vehicles,” he said, “for our client to be taken through such a laughable process.”

In the petition written February 8 to David Asante Apeatu, Mr Anyenini narrated what lead to the vehicles ending up at the police station.

“Sir, the said vehicles (5) which are a matter of public knowledge, were wrongfully and unlawfully removed from our client’s Golf City residence in Tema on Wednesday, February 1, 2017, in a style and fashion reminiscent of excesses of the country’s dark past of unconstitutional rule.

“The group of men who engaged in the said unconstitutional conduct, criminal trespass, and violation in the face of our client’s guaranteed rights to privacy and property, have since been identified and understood to have acted on the unlawful instructions of state actors,” the petition said.

Upon release of the vehicles’ Mr Anyenini said the documentation they presented were “just too enormous to have any other different conclusion. The police took their time; they went to the Customs, Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Driver Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) and all their checks have vindicated him.

The NDC National Organiser has since driven his vehicles home.
