The three former policemen were arrested for allegedly training bodyguards of the opposition's presidential candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The ex cops, Major Chris Hazis, 54; Warrant Officer Denver Dwayhe, 33, and Captain Mlungiseli Jokani were detained in Ghana for close to two weeks by the Bureau of National Investigations after they were found conducting a security training session at a hotel in Ghana.

When the local police and BNI operatives investigated the hotel where the trio were training a group of young men in various 'military drills', they also discovered a 'comprehensive report' on the operations.

"The document contained a detailed profile of all the workers of Super Lock Technologies (STL), past and present and went on to identify key staff members, giving an assessment of their strengths and vulnerabilities with the view to possibly compromising them so as to get them commit acts that will tend to favour a particular party in the 2016 elections, using the STL security infrastructure," BNI said.

They were arrested on March 20 and granted bail on March 24.

According to myjoyonline, the former cops were deported today and their visas revoked by the Ghanaian Immigration Service.
