Journalist with Angel FM, Kofi Adomah Nwanwani, has disclosed that the Criminal Investigative Department of the Police did not write to formally invite him for interrogation.
Speaking on The Point of View, he said some of his friends within the legal space chided him for honouring the “phone call invite” from Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Juliana Obeng of the Public Affairs Unit of the CID.
“I didn’t see it that way [the need to discuss with the legal team of Angel FM] but it was after I went that a few friends of mine who are in the legal fraternity advised that what I did was wrong that you can’t assume that the call was friendly hence it [interrogation] was going to be friendly.”
Making a comparison to the Leader of Economic Fighters League, Ernesto Yeboah, and the PNC National Chairman, Bernard Mornah’s encounter with the police, he said: “I think mine [invitation from police] was quite friendly. I was asked some questions and let go without writing a statement. There was nothing like a caution.”
The invitation came after his largely accurate prediction of the easing of lockdown restrictions by the President went viral.
According to him, the said recording was made on the Thursday and aired on his YouTube channel on the Friday before the President’s tenth address to the nation on Sunday, May 31 announcing the eased restrictions.
