The National Communication Director for the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akomea has rubbished media reports claiming that the party has contracted three retired police officers from South Africa to train party security for the November elections.
According to him, the three South African retired officers were only contracted by the owner of the hotel, Captain Kwesi Acquah (rtd), who is also the owner of Delta Force Security Company Limited to train his security personnel which in his view should not be seen as a threat to national security.
Speaking in an interview on frontline on Rainbow Radio, Tuesday morning, the former legislator challenged the BNI to come out with their so-called findings which sought to implicate their flagbearer and the NPP of contracting persons to engage in activities seen as threat to national security.
The three — Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis (retd), 54; Warrant Officer Denver Dwayhe, 33, and Captain Mlungiseli Jokani, 45 — were picked up at the EL-Capitano Hotel where they had been based since arriving in the country at the beginning of this month.
The three South African police officers were arrested at Agona Duakwa in the Central Region for allegedly engaging in activities with national security implications.
Nana Akomea, revealed on the show that, this is not the first time the retired officers are training the Delta Force Security guards because they conducted a similar training in 2012 for the company.
He stressed, the training is to enhance activities of the security company to provide their clients better services.
