The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has picked up the Deputy General Secretary of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Koku Anyidoho, for inciting civilians to launch a coup d’etat against the Akufo-Addo government.

Mr Anyidoho was picked up at the Press Centre in Accra on Tuesday, where he and several other opposition leaders belonging to the Progressive Forces, were holding a news conference to condemn the government for signing a security cooperation deal with the United States of America.

Mr Anyidoho’s arrest follow indications by Minister of Information Mustapha Abdul-Hamid that Ghana’s security agencies must invite the NDC politician over his comment.

Mr Anyidoho told Happy FM on Monday, 26 March that: “Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.

“On the 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.”

“There’ll be a civilian coup d’etat; there’ll be a social revolution and the movement is starting on Wednesday. He [Akufo-Addo] will be fed up at the presidency,” Mr Anyidoho said.

Speaking on the matter, Mr Abdul-Hamid told Accra-based Citi FM on Tuesday, 27 March in an interview that: “As it is done everywhere in the world if people make treasonable comments, alluding to the fact that they intend to overthrow a government it will be important for the security agencies to have a chat with him to find out how he intends to that and if in deed there was a plot which is already at an advance stage.”
