National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has been granted bail with an amount of ¢400,000 with two sureties and is to report back to the CID headquarters on Thursday.
He was however also slapped with four charges which includes threat of harm, conspiracy to commit harm, rioting and assaulting a public officer over an explosive audio.
His release came moments after agitated supporters and loyalists of the party massed up at the Police Headquarters in Accra, demanding his release.
Ofosu-Ampofo finally honoured the invitation of the Police CID over the leaked audio tape involving him.
Mr. Ofosu Ampofo was at the CID head office to answer questions following a viral leaked audio in which he allegedly made some comments bordering on the security of some persons and the country ahead of the 2020 general elections.
In the same tape, he is heard telling the audience believed to be executives of the party to attack the Chairperson of the Peace Council Chairman, Professor Emmanuel Asante.
His attendance to the Police headquarters was in the company of senior lawyers including Tony Lithur and former Attorney General Marrietta Brew Appiah-Oppong among others who served in the erstwhile Mahama administration.
