AK47 wielding Policemen have stormed the International Press Centre Tuesday afternoon to arrest the Deputy Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho over his declaration that there will be civil coup to oust President Akufo Addo.
Mr Anyidoho in an interview with Happy FM Monday stated that a strategically planned series of activities are to kick start from Wednesday, March 28, 2018 with a planned nationwide demonstration against the government in protest of the Ghana -US Military agreement which was ratified last Friday by Parliament.
“Somebody should tell Nana Akufo Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself. On the 13th of January 1972, a certain Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong led an insurrection movement that removed the Progress Party in power. Busia was the Prime Minister, Akufo Addo’s father was the Ceremonial President. Somebody should tell Akufo Addo that history has a way of repeating itself, there will be a civil revolt, there’ll be a people movement. When President Mahama was in power, Let My Vote Count Alliance and OccupyGhana didn’t they say they say they’ll unsettle the government?
“There’ll be a civilian coup d’etate , there’ll be a social revolution. We’re starting on Wednesday, Akufo Addo will have a headache, he’ll experience stomach upset, he says he was to be President of this country, we’ll make sure he’s fed up at the Presidency.”
“As it is done everywhere in the world if people make treasonable comments, alluding to the fact that they intend to overthrow a government it will be important for the security agencies to have a chat with him to find out how he intends to that and if in deed there was a plot which is already at an advance stage.”
Mr Anyidoho was arrested at the Press Centre when the NDC was preparing to have a press conference over the US military deal.
Anyidoho, however, refused to be arrested by the Police and decided to walk from Press Centre to the Police Headquarters to be questioned over his comments.
Starr FM’s Eric Mawuena Egbeta reports that some macho men prevented the Police from arresting and decided to walk him to the premises of the Police headquarters.
