EOCO officers invade EC; sack interdicted Deputy EC boss
Officials of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) have invaded the offices of the Electoral Commission with an objective to force the Deputy Commissioner of the Electoral Commission Georgina Opoku Amankwa out of her office.
Mrs Amankwaa is said to have defied an order of interdiction by the EOCO and reported to work, Monday.
She has been the subject of an investigation after several allegations of financial impropriety were made against her.
But she is not the only one. Two others, the chairperson of the EC, Mrs Charlotte Osei and Deputy in charge of Operations Amadu Sulley are all subjects of investigation and possible impeachment.
Mrs Amankwaa who has been on interdiction for several months now started work, Monday claiming she cannot be singled out for interdiction.However, Joy News’ Latif Iddrisu says three operatives from EOCO made their way into the premises of the EC to force her out of office.
But she has resisted, insisting, the action by the EOCO is unconstitutional.
She said only the president has the power to interdict her. Mrs Georgina Opoku Amankwa has locked herself up in her office daring the EOCO officials to break in.
She has vowed to break into her own office on Tuesday even if the EOCO officials decide to put it under lock and key.
