Bernard Mornah granted police enquiry bail

The National Chairman of the People's National Convention (PNC), Mr Bernard Mornah, has been granted police enquiry bail in connection with alleged threats he made against the Electoral Commission (EC).

He is to report to the headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on June 16, 2020.


The PNC chairman was granted bail after his bail condition of one surety was signed by the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the PNC, Mr Bala Maikankan.

This was after a meeting between some leaders of the PNC, National Democratic Congress (NDC) and other members of the Inter-party Resistance Against New Register (IPRAN) and top officials of the CID.

The closed-door meeting, which started at about 11:45a.m. ended at about 1:30p.m.

Some high-ranking members of the NDC, including its national chairman, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, Alhaji Huudu Yahaya and Mr Abraham Amaliba, arrived at the headquarters of the CID in connection with the invitation of Mr Mornah at about 10:52a.m.

After arriving at the CID Headquarters, they were seen holding some discussions at the second floor of the CID headquarters before they held a closed door meeting with the Deputy Director-General of the CID, Barima Tweneboah Sasraku II, the head of Operations, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mr Joseph Oklu-Gyamrah, and other top officials of the CID.


Ahead of the meeting some supporters of the PNC, NDC and members of IPRAN defied the downpour to besiege the headquarters of the CID.

The supporters who were blocked at the headquarters of the National Fire Service managed to find their way to the entrance of the CID headquarters where personnel of the Formed Police Unit prevented them from entering the premises.


After the meeting, Mr Amaliba told the Daily Graphic that a 37-second video in which Mr Mornah was purported to have made the said threats was shown to him (Mornah) and he confirmed making the comments.

They initially wanted to arrest him, citing the statement which were captured on the video and after the video was shown he was charged for offensive conduct conducive to the breach of the peace.

Mr Amaliba said Mr Mornah was then made to write a caution statement in which he said he was not prepared to make any statement beyond what was on the video.
