Coup plot: I’m innocent, allegations can’t break me – ACP Agordzor
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Dr Benjamin Agordzor who is under investigation for an alleged plot to destabilize the state says he is not guilty of the crime.The outspoken senior police officer believes he is
being victimized because of his love to publicly express his thoughts on national issues as a citizen. Addressing the media after his appearance in court today, Wednesday, ACP Dr. Agordzor stated that he has no
hand in the said plot to destabilize the state.“The charges are frivolous. I am as strong as anything. Nobody should bog me, I have not committed any crime. I have done nothing wrong. The President called upon us to be
citizens so when I express my opinion on WhatsApp platforms unrelated to any alleged coup nobody should bog me down. I will stand for this till the end. You cannot break me down because I am strong for anything.”
Dr. Benjamin Agordzor was arraigned today at the Kaneshie District Court. He was picked up on Monday, November 4, 2019 and has been denied bail by the BNI for two nights. His family has been denied access to
him since his arrest. Mr. Agordzor has been charged with abetment for treason by the state after he was invited for questioning on Monday. Also, former executive secretary to the former IGP Peter Tuubo and
ACP Kofi Boakye have been interrogated over the alleged attempt to destabilise the country. Already, senior military officer Colonel Samuel Kojo Gameli and a civilian employee of the Ghana Armed Forces Gershun
Akpa, have been charged for their role in what the government describes as an “elaborate plot targeted at the Presidency.”Meanwhile, lawyers of the nine persons who have been charged with treason felony have
accused the military High Command of invasion of privacy. According to the lawyers, who have some of their clients with the Ghana Armed Forces remanded at the Military custody, anytime they have conferences with them, persons with the Defence Intelligence Unit sit-in and record their private conversation.
Lawyer Kodjogah Adawudu made this known to the Kaneshie District Court presided over by Her Worship Mrs Eleanor Botwe when the case was called on Monday, October 28. ASP Sylvester Asare, prosecutor in the matter, on his part said nothing of that sought has come to his attention.He however assured the court that he would liaise with his colleagues at the GAF to make sure the right thing is done and report back to the court.
