The National Vice Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alhaji Said Sinare has been processed for court.
He is to appear before the Kaneshie District Court today, October 29, 2020.
This comes after he reported to the Accra Regional Police Command following an invitation extended to him by the police to assist in investigations into an allegation that he wanted to arm people with weapons to cause chaos during the December 2020 polls.
Alhaji Said Sinare had earlier denied culpability in the alleged plot to Citi News.
According to Mr. Sinare, the allegations against him are false, and he is certain that he will be exonerated.
He claimed that the allegations were made against him by one of his ex-staff who is also the NDC’s constituency chairman for the Ayawaso North constituency, Tahiru Ahmed.
“He is the Ayawaso North constituency chairman [for the NDC]. He is my boy and I groomed him. He is my employee, and he has been working for me for the past 8 years and I fired him exactly about five weeks ago because of so many reasons. That blackmail will never work because I am a very clean person with a good track record. I am not going to cause mayhem anywhere, I have been preaching peace everywhere I go,” he said.
The constituency chairman of the NDC reportedly presented an AK-47 and pump action gun to the police as evidence of the arms being given by the NDC Vice-Chairman to foment trouble.
But according to Alhaji Sinare, he has no idea about the source of the AK-47, but he owns a pump-action gun which got missing months ago.
“I don’t own an AK-47. I don’t even know where this guy got the AK-47 but the pump-action gun is my pump-action gun that has been registered. I reported to the police that my pump-action gun has been missing some few months back. I have got an extract of that report so at the end of the day I will be cleared because that guy, that constituency chairman must be caught, and they must put him behind bars, and they must find out from him how he got the AK-47,” he said.
