Hundreds of supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) including members of its security outfit Invisible Forces, have gathered in front of NPP presidential candidate, Nana Akufo Addo’s Nima residence to protect it against any raid.

They say they have picked up intelligence indicating that the Police and Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) are planning to raid their party flagbearer’s house.

Their fears appear to based on the raid on the Danquah Institute in the late hours of Thursday night.

The supporters say they will remain there to protect the residence until they are told to leave by their leader.

Nana Addo is currently in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region and will move to Kwahu in the Eastern Region over the Easter weekend. He is expected to return to Accra on Sunday.

There has been tension between the government and the opposition NPP since the BNI arrested three South African ex-policemen who were training the party’s security personnel in the Central Region.

The NPP has already made allegations that personnel believed to be drawn from the Ghana Police Service and the BNI on Thursday evening raided the office of the policy think tank, Danquah Institute in Accra.

A Deputy Director of Communications for the NPP, Perry Okudzeto told Citi News that the individuals involved in the raid included a Police officer in uniform and six others in mufti.

He narrated that when the security operatives got to the place, they ordered the caretaker to open the gate which he refused.

According to him, they then jumped the wall and entered the premises adding that the caretaker sensing danger took to his heels.
