My own party people recorded me at a meeting held with the leadership of the party and sold it to the NPP who are prosecuting me on that. I have been to court seventy times…” he stated in a yet-to-be-aired interview with Adom TV.

Ofosu-Ampofo and Anthony Kwaku Boahen, an NDC Communications Officer, are on trial for conspiracy to cause harm.
