Coup plot: Agordzor to be arraigned today
A former Director of the Transformation Office of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Dr. Benjamin Agordzor is set to face court today over his alleged complicity in the destabilization plot.
ACP Dr. Agordzor was picked up on Monday, November 4, 2019, and has been denied bail by the BNI for two nights.
His family has been denied access to him since his arrest.
Mr. Agordzor has been charged with abetment for treason by the state after he was invited for questioning on Monday.
Also, former executive secretary to the former IGP Peter Tuubo and ACP Kofi Boakye have been interrogated over the alleged attempt to destabilise the country.
Already, senior military officer Colonel Samuel Kojo Gameli and a civilian employee of the Ghana Armed Forces Gershun Akpa, have been charged for their role in what the government describes as an “elaborate plot targeted at the Presidency.”
Meanwhile, lawyers of the nine persons who have been charged with treason felony have accused the military High Command of invasion of privacy.
According to the lawyers, who have some of their clients with the Ghana Armed Forces remanded at the Military custody, anytime they have conferences with them, persons with the Defence Intelligence Unit sit-in and record their private conversation.
Lawyer Kodjogah Adawudu made this known to the Kaneshie District Court presided over by Her Worship Mrs. Eleanor Botwe when the case was called on Monday, October 28.
ASP Sylvester Asare, prosecutor in the matter, on his part said nothing of that sought has come to his attention.
He, however, assured the court that he would liaise with his colleagues at the GAF to make sure the right thing is done and report back to the court.
