Mr Ponkoh, who confirmed his invitation said the police, in two pickups, stormed his house on Tuesday, 19 February 2019, with arms and conducted a search and subsequently invited him.
He said they found nothing and later took his statement. He revealed that former Deputy Minister of the Ashanti Region, Joseph Yammin, has also been invited by the police over the same incident.
On Monday, a meeting at the Ashanti regional office of the NDC turned bloody when some unidentified men suspected to be members of the Hawks, a pro NDCvigilante group, opened fire on members of the Regional Task Force of the party.
One person who has been identified as Wassis Idris, a 30-year-old scrap dealer and a member of the task force, was shot and killed while another one, Abdul Rahman, received gunshot wounds.
After the shooting, the members fled using motorbikes.
