Bono Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe popularly known as Abronye DC will be put before court today February 16 over coup claims against former President, John Dramani Mahama.
According to the Police, preliminary Investigations by the Ghana Police Service have revealed that the coup plot allegations are untrue.
Abronye DC was detained on Tuesday by the Accra Regional Command, after he honoured their invitation over the said allegations.
He was subsequently charged with the publication of false news and Offensive Conduct conducive to the breach of Peace.
The Bono regional chairman of the NPP Abronye DC has alleged that former President John Mahama has met the Al Qaeda militants to stage a coup in Ghana.
According to the NPP stalwart, John Mahama is in ties with the group to help him undertake a coup to become president again.
The regional chairman made the allegation on Hot 93.9FM’s political -talk show” Dwene Ho Bio” hosted by Agya Wusu while responding to issues leading to the arrest of convenor Oliver Barker on his attempt to make a coup if E-levy is passed.
Meanwhile, a member of the communication team of the NPP, Hopeson Adorye says he is disappointed at how the Police handled the case.
Mr. Adorye, while addressing journalists at the Accra Regional Police Command on Tuesday evening said the accused person is innocent of the charges levelled against him, and is going to prove it in Court.
“The charges that have been levelled against him are unfair. He was minding his business when he was called from a Radio station to react to a comment another person had made.”
“How can this pass for misconduct? I am not a law student but I don’t think it does. I believe the IGP thought he spoke from the studio, but he did not. We are going to prove this to the IGP tomorrow [Wednesday]. He only said the mindset of Oliver is what Mahama carries. Isn’t that the case? Don’t they work together? They have the same vision,” he said.
