The Agona West Constituency Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Mr. Maxwell Kofi Quist has admitted that the four young men arrested for allegedly plotting to assassinate the Member of Parliament for the Area Cynthia Mamle Morrison, are all members of the NDC.
Speaking in an interview with Adom FM Dwaso Nsem this morning, Mr. Maxwell Kofi Quist revealed that the young men were invited by the Party to the constituency when the flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama visited them last week.
He adds that the young men were given a special class treatment, and that is why they were placed in the hotel. He indicates that the allegations being leveled against the young men are baseless. He however urged the police to speed up investigations to unravel the whole truth about the issue.
“The guys are members of the NDC so they are permitted to come to the constituency at any time they want. They came here when JM visited us on Wednesday. That’s when they came to the hotel.
They are the police say they retrieve knives from them, that is for the police but we are also investigating to know the truth about the whole issue. I cannot tell you which constituency they came from but we know them as members of the NDC. The police are investigating so I will want to wait on them to finish their investigations first”. Maxwell Kofi Quist indicated.
Mr. Maxwell Kofi Quist added that the current allegations leveled against the NDC Parliamentary candidate are mere claims to disgrace him.
