NDC MPs Must Reject New Bodyguards; They Could Be Spies – Afriyie Ankrah



The Director of Elections for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has urged the Minority in Parliament to reject any new bodyguards assigned to them by the government.

His comment comes after the interdiction of the personal bodyguard of Francis Xavier Sosu, lawmaker for Madina Constituency.

Inspector Agbavor was cited for alleged misconduct, forming the reason for his interdiction.

He is accused to have recklessly driven into a crowd after a protest on the Ayi Mensah-Danfa Road, endangering the lives of two senior officers and other civilians.

The Parliamentary Protection Unit was tasked to assign a new guard to the first-time MP.

Speaking on this matter in an interview with TV3’s Evelyn Tengmaa, Mr Afriyie Ankrah said “If I were the Minority MPs I would reject all those body guards because they have become a threat.

“If a body guard is performing his lawful and dutiful functions and because of that the Police service will withdraw the person then it doesn’t add up.  Because he did his duty as somebody who is meant to protect his subject. But for protecting his subject you said you have interdicted him. So are all the other MPs safe? Who knows if they are not being even spied on.”
