Anything you say can also be used against you in the court of law. So if I were him, and I am comfortable with the Dagbani language, I would have spoken that so that I will be free. I know ‘Double’ speaks English, I can also tell you that currently, he’s schooling in a Tertiary Institution here in Accra,” he disclosed.’Double’ has been accused by Ningo-Prampram MP, Samuel George, of being among the National Security operatives who fired gunshots towards a crowd during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-elections on January, 31, 2019.Sam George also alleged that ‘Double’ was a member of the pro-NPP militia group, ‘Invincible Forces’.
