An alleged mole that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) had planted within the circles of a National Vice Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Alhaji Said Sinare, has hit back with allegations of gun-running after he was smoked out and fired.
Tahiru Ahmed, who had even been voted as the NDC’s Constituency Chairman for Ayawaso North has reported Alhaji Sinare to the Greater Accra Regional Police Command, claiming the National Vice Chairman had handed him a cache of AK47 assault rifles for distribution in the Northern Region.
Alhaji Sinare has denied the allegations, saying it was a concoction of a bitter man whom he fired after finding out that he was an NPP mole that had been planted in the Ayawaso North NDC.
In a 27th October letter to National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, Alhaji Sinare makes the point that the fabrication by Tahiru Ahmed only confirms his suspicion that he was a planted mole and that sacking him as a personal employee was good riddance.
“Mr. Tahiru Ahmed had been my permanent employee for the past eight (8) years until last month when his appointment was terminated, as I had enough suspicion that he is a mole for the ruling party. according to his accusation filed with the Police, and the AK 47 gun produced, I gave him those guns to be used in the Northern Region during the national elections on the 7th December 2020 to intimidate NPP voters,” Alhaji Sinare’s letter to Chairman Ofosu-Ampofo read.
According Alhaji Said Sinare, “this singular action initiated at this time, confirms my suspicion that he was working against the party’s interest and intends to bring myself and the party’s name into disrepute. It is my prayer that disciplinary procedures are immediately initiated against him and excluded from party strategies.”
However, it is an open secret that the two major political parties in Ghana may be stockpiling and preparing their vigilante groups for a possible showdown run-up to the December elections.
Some mysterious consignment of arms have been intercepted on a number of occasions at the Tema Port, in what is suspected to be destined for political actors, particularly in the ruling party.
