Ampofo although acknowledged his signature on the statement, buy claimed he had no knowledge of the content.

After many tussles by the defence and prosecution, the Accra High Court adopted the statement after the presiding judge, Justice Samuel Asiedu, ruled that as far as the witness had identified his signature on the statement, the statement was valid.

Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and Anthony Kweku Boahen, a Deputy Communication Officer is the party, are on trial over an alleged leaked tape in which they are accused of inciting violence against the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Mrs Jean Mensa, and the Chairman of the National Peace Council (NPC), Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Asante.

The two have pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit assault against a public officer, while Ofosu-Ampofo has pleaded not guilty to two counts of assault against a public officer.
