Six Ashanti regional leaders of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), who were detained today for engaging in unauthorized use of military camouflage in party political activities, have been given self-recognizance parole by the Ashanti Regional Police Command.
On Monday, March 20, 2023, the police headquarters telephoned the executives to extend an offer; the group deemed the request insulting and refused it.
However, the NDC representatives were subsequently formally called by the police through the regional crime officer, which is why they were present in the police headquarters.
First Vice Chairman of the Party and former Captain John Kwame Jabari, who is also the leader of the “NDC’s GREEN ARMY,” spoke to the media after obtaining police parole. He claimed that the police call was a political ploy to frighten the party’s Ashanti region executives.
Intimidation by the authorities, he continued, would not prevent them from donning camouflage during NDC events.
According to Capt. Rtd. Jabari, those who are insulted by the actions can file a lawsuit to halt the political activity of the NDC’s GREEN ARMY.
