General News of Sunday, 1 April 2018
Embattled Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho has said, he will speak to his arrest by the police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) upon a advise of a legal team.
“Whatever it is that I was supposed to have said let the investigations continue and my lawyers will speak to those issues”, he said.
“On January 13, 1972, a certain Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong led a movement that removed the Progress Party from power. Busia was the Prime Minister and Akufo-Addo’s father was a ceremonial president. Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself,” said the NDC firebrand on Happy FM.
“There’ll be a civilian coup d’etat; there’ll be a social revolution and the movement is starting on Wednesday. He [Akufo-Addo] will be fed up with the Presidency,” he added.
Ask by the host of Joy FM’s Newsfile, Samson Lardy Anyinane monitored by MyNewsGh.com, whether he regrets from those comments,
the maverick Deputy General Secretary insisted: “That’s still within the domain of the investigators and “My lawyers will speak to those issues.”
Anyidoho had spent 48 hours in the custody of the BNI after he was arrested for making comments such unsavoury and treasonable.
Mr. Koku Anyidiho, however, denied being charged with treason as being reported in some media outlets.
