Koku Anyidoho, Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, is expected to report himself to the CID of the Ghana Police Service today April 3, 2018.
Koku Anyidoho’s presence at the CID headquarters is to assist investigations into the allegations of treason leveled against him.
Koku Anyidoho was on Thursday, March 29, 2018, granted bail by the Police CID. The conditions of the bail were however unknown to the public.
Koku Anyidoho was on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, arrested for claiming that there will be a civil coup d’etat against the Akufo-Addo government in the coming days.
Speaking in an interview on Starr FM, Koku Anyidoho explained that there is nothing wrong with a civil coup if it means taking back Ghana’s sovereignty.
“I said history has an interesting way of repeating itself…we are revolting against the President and what is wrong with that…who is talking about a military takeover? We won’t allow the sovereignty of the nation to be taken for granted,” the NDC executive said.
Koku Anyidoho in an interview with Happy FM on Monday claimed a series of activities to unsettle the Akufo-Addo government will take off on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, with a planned nationwide demonstration.
“Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself,” Koku Anyidoho 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.
“There’ll be a civil revolt. There’ll be a people’s movement. During President John Mahama’s tenure didn’t we receive similar threats from the likes of Let My Vote Count and OccupyGhana,” the former presidential spokesperson opined.
Meanwhile, Koku Anyidoho’s comments attracted condemnation from government with NDC General Secretary Asiedu Nketia isolating himself and the party from the stated position.
