Gbevlo-Lartey has denied claims made by Mr Martin Amidu that he sent BNI officials to arrest him on the eve of the 2012 polls.
Former National Security Coordinator, Colonel Larry Gbevlo-Lartey has stated that Martin Amidu’s claim that he (Gbevlo-Lartey) sent BNI officials to search his home and detain him is on the eve of 2012 polls is untrue.
According to him, "That is also a statement of falsehood. I did not send any such persons.”
Martin Amidu accused Gbevlo-Lartey for arresting and detaining him on the eve of the December 2012 elections by personnel of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) who were operating on the orders of the then national security coordinator.
Mr Amidu was said to have been attacked by the former National Security Coordinator who through a Facebook post punched Amidu over his assertions on Mr Agbesi Woyome's verdict that set him free.
According to Mr. Amidu, “Gbevlo-Lartey after his sudden and unexpected removal from office may be seeking to curry favour with the Government by pretending to know everything that happened before I left office.
“I would want Gbevlo-Lartey and his type in the NDC to know for the avoidance of all doubts that on 4th September 2014 a High Court entered judgment in my favour recognizing that my alleged dismissal for misconduct was illegal, and wrong as it was without due process of law.”
He went on further to state that Gbevlo Lartey at some point in time sent “officials of the BNI to search my residence, arrest me and detain me for hours on 6th December 2012, without a Court warrant on the very eve of 2012 Election when tensions were very high in the country could have caused mayhem in the country if I had invited the media and others to my residence that day?
