Addressing Journalists, Public Relations Officer (P.R.O) of the Criminal Investigations Department, DSP Juliana Obeng said "We have started an investigation into comments made by the Deputy General Secretary of the NPP. The fact that we have not arrested him does not mean that he cannot or will not be arrested. So if authorities during investigations find it prudent to arrest him, he will be arrested but for now, he has not been arrested.”


She added that earlier this week, Major Boakye-Djan was arrested and granted over similar comments by Mr. Boahen adding that due diligence will be done on the matter.
