The driver of NDC’s Deputy General Secretary who was on Monday picked up by the National Investigations Bureau (NIB), Eric Adogla has been released on bail.

Mr Adogla who was arrested in connection to recent fires recorded in markets was released on police enquiry bail to the sum of ¢20,000 with one surety.

Legal counsel for the suspect, Francis-Xavier Sosu and Kojogah Adawudu insisted that the arrest was illegitimate since their client had not been informed the charges ensuing his arrest.

Lawyer Kojogah Adawudu who closely followed the case after the arrest revealed that his client was denied access to lawyers when he was being interrogated.

Lawyer Sosu affirms that the unlawful arrest is a deliberate attempt by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to support their claim that the NDC is behind the market burnings.

He said the NDC has no intention of causing pain to Ghanaians as a means of political action.

The suspect, Eric Adogla is to reappear on Thursday, 24th December, 2020.
