CID has released vehicles seized from Kofi Adams to him
CID releases Kofi Adams' five cars
The five cars seized by the Criminal
Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana
Police Service have been released to the National
Organiser of the main opposition National
Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, after he
had provided all the necessary documents covering
them to ascertain the ownership of the cars.
Mr Adams’ lawyer, Samson Lardy Anyenini, confirmed
the release of the cars on Thursday, 16 February
on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, a political talk show.
The vehicles include two Toyota Land Cruiser V8s
with registration numbers GS 7451-12 and GN
7796-16 respectively and three Nissan Hardbody
Pick-Ups with registration numbers GM 842-16, GM
823-16 and GM 846-16, respectively.
On 1 February, 15 armed men dressed in military
fatigues, suspected to be army personnel, stormed
the private residence of Mr Adams and seized all
his vehicles in the company of four alleged
National Security officers and personnel from the
Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA).
According to Mr Adams, who said he was in Dubai
during the incident, the soldiers ransacked his
Tema Gulf City home and drove away the five cars.
The cars, according to the soldiers, were
suspected to belong to the state and were taken to
the Flagstaff House.
National Security Minister Albert Kan-Dapaah later
called Mr Adams to apologise to him saying the
action was not sanctioned by officialdom. Mr
Kan-Dapaah ordered the return of the cars but Mr
Adams insisted they be taken to the police for
inspection and an inventory taken before he could
take them back. The CID, however, held onto the
cars until Mr Adams was compelled to write to the
IGP to demand his vehicles back.
The Pick-Ups are in the name of Japan Motors while
the two Land Cruisers are in the name of Mr
