He said they first rode to the NDC Party Headquarters but did not receive a suitable response before riding to Ridge.

According to him, they will remain around the premises until the family of the former President confirms the news.

Joining the riders in front of a house opposite the former President's house are hordes of pressmen who are sniffing for the latest updates.

Security at the entrance of the former President is very tight and entry is only granted to individuals and vehicles after they have been questioned by military personnel.
