Chairman for the Committee on Defense and Interior, Seth Kwame Acheampong has revealed that they are waiting to have a meeting with the Inspector General of Police (IGP) over allegation of police “planting weed” on suspects whiles they effect arrest.

According to him as far as he is concerned, the allegation against the security placing wee on prophet Owusu Adjei are just suspicion and he cannot authenticate that was done by the security operative at the time they effected the arrest.

“The prophet had his wallet on him I don’t need to go further on this issue, investigation is being carried out and that investigation would speak for itself, I do not think the security personnel are interested in planting things on people”, he said this at a media briefing with journalists.

Mr. Acheampong noted that it is criminal to act in that manner and against the laws of the country and nobody should be encouraged to do that.

The security would give Ghanaians better particulars on the matter since he was arrested in the presence of the former District Chief Executive of Kwaebibirem Mr. Agyeman Duah, and pleaded with his colleagues in the Minority to arm themselves with the facts.

On the issue of filming the arrested prophet he said it is difficult to know who the originators of the video were as the National Security do not lay claim to the video.

As to where the prophet was, he noted that he is in police custody as he had gone through the court process.
