Security analyst Colonel Retired Festus Aboagye says the two senior Police officers who have so far been questioned over the alleged coup plot are not officers who are willing to jeopardise the security of the state.
“For now, it has not been established that Mr. Agordzor is part of the inner circles of the group. I know him and I can’t vouch for him but I’m not too sure Mr. Agordzor will be part of the core clique. Dr. Agordzo is not a coup maker, he is not somebody who will be involved in overthrowing government. The mere allegation that anybody is charged with treason is a very serious prospect.
“I don’t think COP Kofi Boakye and Dr. Agordzor will plan coup in this country even though I cannot vouch for them. Let’s be patient and allow the state exhaust the options,” he told Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Tuesday.
ACP Dr. Benjamin Agordzor and COP Kofi Boakye have so far been questioned over the alleged attempt to destabilise the country.
While COP Boakye was set free after responding to an invitation by the BNI, ACP Agordzor is being detained and has been charged with abetment for treason by the state.
He however believes he is persecuted.
According to his lawyer Martin Akpebu, the reasons his client is being held by the BNI are weak.
“Essentially, they are holding him over whatsApp messages. The fact that he was giving advice on lawful means of holding demonstration and donating towards a philanthropic course. They also say he said conditions for Arab spring are rife in Ghana, this something that most commentators on various issues have one point said before,” he told Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Tuesday.
He added: ”My client sees the case as a witch-hunt and persecution over his outspokenness. The way he spoke out at the IDEG event about how the police is not independent and the political interference in the service. This is not something he should be detained. He sees this case as a witch hunt, as persecution. At the IDEG event he had said the police is not independent”.
