The families of some nine alleged coup plotters who have been charged with treason felony, besieged a district law court on Wednesday, 9 October 2019, to invoke the power of their ancestral gods to ensure justice for their kith.

The nine persons were accused of plotting to destabilise the country.

Speaking in the Ewe language, the leader of the suspects’ families, who wore a blue smock and blue pair of trousers, chanted incantations and poured libation to plead with their gods to intervene in the matter.

The leader also requested the deities to strike dead anyone involved in any form of the plot against their relatives.

The nine who were charged are Dr Fredrick Mac Palm, Colonel Samuel Kodzo Gameli, Geshong Akpa, W.O.2 Esther Doku, Lance Corporal Ali Solomon, Lance Corporal Albert Baba Ibrahim, Lance Corporal Sylvester Akapewon, Bright Alan Debrah and Corporal Seidu Abubakar.
