Source: rainbowradioonline. com - The Head of the private security detail for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, Captain (rtd) Edmund Koda, has revealed that he was never manhandled by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) when he was in their custody.
Captain Koda was arrested by the BNI for allegedly inviting three South African ex-cops, who have since been deported to South Africa, to train the security detail of Nana Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

The state dropped its charges against Captain Koda but re-arrested him for another round of questioning after it was established that he invited the three South Africa ex-cops to train the party's private security.

He was later released by the BNI on grounds of health.

Speaking on his detention for the first time in an exclusive interview with Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio, Captain Koda said he was never manhandled by the BNI while in their custody.

According to him, the three South African ex-cops were also not abused nor manhandled by the BNI.

"I was never manhandled by the BNI while in their custody, neither were the three South African ex-cops maltreated. I saw them, I personally asked them and they told me that the BNI never abused them."

Commenting on the detention of Nana Addo's private security guard and photographer, Captain Koda noted, the pair- Kwadwo Kyeremanten and Malik Neequaye- were detained because they refused to sign a 'Personality Profile' form at the Bureau.

The pair had accompanied Captain Koda to the BNI to retrieve items collected from his residence when operatives of the BNI mounted a search at his residence a few weeks ago.

He said the refusal by the pair in signing the forms was based on explicit advice by their lawyers which they had already conveyed to the BNI.

According to him, the BNI contacted them some weeks ago to retrieve his items, but with the pair who acted as witnesses when the items were collected from his residence.
