NPP applies for police protection for Gloria Akuffo & Philip Addison

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has applied to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) for police protection for Gloria Akuffo and Philip Addison, both members of the legal team for the petitioners in the ongoing Supreme Court case challenging the December 2012 elections.

The request was made after two ‘macho men’ on a motorbike, on Monday 13th May 2013, went to the offices of Akufo-Addo, Prempeh & Co. demanding to know the residential address Gloria Akuffo. The two, were subsequently referred to Mr Alex Quainoo, one of the lawyers at the firm.

After listening to their requests, Alex Quainoo however turned them away.

Two days after the strange visit and demand, the office of Gloria Akuffo was burgled.

Captain Koda (rtd), Head of Security of Nana Akufo-Addo’s outfit, earlier this week, was thus forced to report the incidents to the office Inspector General of Police (IGP) and request for official police protection for Gloria Akuffo and other members of the legal team.

According to Captain Kodah, he was asked to return with a formal written application, copied to the Director of Operations of the Ghana Police Service, DCOP John Kudalor, for action to be expedited on the matter.

This official request was presented to the IGP on Thursday.

It will be recalled that the office of Gloria Akuffo was recently broken into by unknown assailants resulting in the theft of two computers as well as the hard drive and memory of a server in the office.

The first intrusion of her office was on Sunday December 16, 2012, barely a week after the general elections, and at a time the NPP had indicated its preparedness to challenge the December 2012 elections in court.
