ACP Benjamin Agordzo has stated that he will never do anything that will derail the peace that Ghana is enjoying.
ACP Agordzo made the comments after he was finally released from Police custody on Thursday, days after he was granted a Ghc500,000 bail by the Criminal High Court, presided over by Justice Charles Ekow Baiden.
ACP Agordzo was accused of offering assistance to alleged coup plotters and was charged with abetment to commit treason.
He was finally granted bail on Tuesday after over three months in Police custody.
On his Facebook page, ACP Agordzo thanked his friends and supporters for believing in him all these months.
“I like to assure those who have believed in me that I believe in democratic values such as rule of law, human rights & constitutional rule. These are the things that drive the passion in me.
“Having spent about 6 years of my life in peacekeeping missions in Sudan, Somalia and Haiti and witnessed how conflicts have ravaged those counties, I will be the last person to do anything to derail the strides we’ve made in democratic development.”
Below is the unedited statement of ACP Benjamin Agordzo
Home at last
Dear colleagues and friends, just to inform you that I’m finally home reunited with my family after almost three months incarceration at BNI, Ministries Police cells and IGP’s custody.
It’s been a whole world of experience and I like to thank God for bringing me this far; my counsel and his team for standing by me with their knowledge and skills in law practice; and those of you who believed in me and supported me in various ways. My special thanks go to my wife, family and the Chiefs and people of Vakpo for their massive support. I appreciate you all.
I was particularly strengthened by the fact that even thousands who had never set eyes on me believed that I couldn’t have done what I was being accused of. These sentiments were expressed in various social media platforms.
*For the millions who silently went on their knees regularly to intervene for me, God richly bless you. Your prayers were not in vain. I know you’ll continue to remember me in your prayers. The Lord of hosts is on our side and it’s not over until it’s over.
I like to assure those who have believed in me that I believe in democratic values such as rule of law, human rights & constitutional rule. These are the things that drive the passion in me.
Having spent about 6 years of my life in peace keeping missions in Sudan, Somalia and Haiti and witnessed how conflicts have ravaged those counties, I will be the last person to do anything to derail the strides we’ve made in democratic development.
Be assured that I love my country so dearly I can never ever do anything to disturb the relative peace we enjoy in Ghana.
This is what I stand for and I’ll never exchange this for anything else
Thank you one more time and God bless. Still counting on your prayers.
