The National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Agona West Constituency, Mr Paul Ofori-Amoah, has allegedly confessed issuing out cheques to four suspected assassins who were arrested in a hotel in Swedru over the weekend.
The confession was made when he was invited and interrogated by the Central Regional Criminal Investigation Department on Monday evening.
His invitation, according to source sources, followed an admission by the suspects that he brought them to Swedru.
As at the time of filing this report, Mr Amoah was at the Regional Police Headquarters where his caution statement was being taken.
A statement from the police to the media stated that the PC, Ofori-Amoah “…Is currently at the RCID and his statement is being taken on caution.”
