Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus Glover

Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus Glover, a leading member of the Young Patriots, a pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) pressure group, is alleged to be a target of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), a source has disclosed.

According to the source, he might be arrested by BNI operatives upon  arrival from London on board a British Airways aircraft at the Kotoka International Airport on Monday after he took part in a demonstration organized by Young Patriots in the British capital.

Hopeson Adorye, a member of the group, confirmed this to DAILY GUIDE and disclosed that he had intelligence that the BNI officials  would be stationed at various points of the airport at 8pm before the arrival of the aircraft.

According to him, Mr. Glover?s purported arrest is in connection with his lead role in the recent demonstration in London to press government to retrieve all monies paid to Alfred Agbesi Wayome as judgment debt.

He accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government of using the security apparatus, especially the BNI, to violate the rights of citizens, saying the Young Patriots will hit the streets if government goes ahead to arrest Titus.

The Young Patriots on the June 29, 2012 staged a demonstration in Archroad, London demanding a refund of all monies paid to Mr. Woyome as judgment debts.

The demonstration was a follow up to similar ones held in some regions of the country where the Young Patriots reminded government of its role in doling out about GH?51.2 million to an individual while promises made to northerners were left unfulfilled.

The two pro-NPP group faulted government for failing to support Savannah Accelerated Authority (SADA) as promised before the 2008 elections.

The Young Patriots noted that the delay in the implementation of the project amounted to deceit of northerners and demanded the dismissal of the board and CEO for incompetence.

In a petition to government through Ghana?s High Commission in Britain, the group said it wanted all monies paid to NDC cronies as judgment debts to be retrieved and re-directed into the SADA account.

It said it could not fathom why some key actors in the alleged Woyome scandal including Betty Mould Iddrisu and Ebo Barton Odro were walking freely.

According to the UK branch, they must be arrested, prosecuted and all their accounts frozen.

These notwithstanding Mr. Titus Glover attributed the high cost of living in Ghana to poor policies and programmes of the current government.

In line with this, he urged all citizens in the country and beyond to hold the current government accountable for the litany of promises made to them.

The London demonstration was said to have sent shivers down the spines of functionaries of the ruling NDC, as thousands of Ghanaians came out in their numbers in solidarity with the Young Patriots.

It further shocked members of the NDC who had prayed for the flop of the demonstration to signify that persons in the Diaspora had no interest in the Woyome issue.

Mr. Adorye indicated that the group will resist an attempt by the NDC party and any arm of government to intimidate and vilify its members who conducted themselves in accordance with the law.
