A former National Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kofi Adams has petitioned the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to summon popular preacher Rev. Owusu Bempah over allegations that some people are planning to kill President Akufo-Addo and his vice.
The petition which was submitted at the CID headquarters Wednesday, 13 March 2019, said: “The Rev. Owusu Bempah, a popular Ghanaian preacher alleged on the OMAN FM on the 28th of February 2019 on its morning show hosted by one Akua Asabea Croppa that certain persons have been contracted to kill the President and Vice-President of the Republic of Ghana. He further said had personal knowledge of the details of the plot and the persons behind it.”
Mr. Adams also furnished the CID with a copy of the interview for further interrogation.
His petition comes on the heels of a recent invitation extended to a popular radio broadcaster Salifu Maase of XYZ radio by the CID after he alleged on his show that an investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni’s life is in danger for uncovering the operations of a militia group affiliated to the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP).
