Businessman and Director of Marbles and Granites Dr. Edmund Ayo Ani has been freed by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).
It’s unclear the conditions under which the BNI let him go, but his lawyers had been pushing for this all weekend. National Security Coordinator Baba Kamara had accused him of circulating information on social media that he has diverted vehicles meant for the NCCE to the NDC.
The said vehicles, numbering about 50, were re-branded at a facility belonging to Baba Kamara on the Spintex Road, next to the premises of Marbles and Granites. According to the BNI, the angles from which the pictures were taken indicate there were taken from the office of the Director of Marbles and Granites.
The National security advisor has confirmed to Joynews he ordered the arrest. He alleged it was not right for Dr. Ayo to take pictures of vehicles in the facility and post them on social media.
But Senior Law Lecturer at the Ghana Law School Opoku Agyemang maintained that the act by the national security advisor is blatant abuse of power.
Meanwhile, Joynews is also learning Mr. Ayo Ani has told the BNI that he did not take those pictures but one Reginald Randoph who is said to be the in-law of NPP presidential candidate, Nana Akufo Addo did that.
The BNI is also holding a Chinese Consultant of Marbles and Granites who was with Dr. Ayo when he was arrested.
