Treason charges against Koku Anyidoho dropped by government

The Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Madam Gloria Akuffo has dropped the treason charges against the Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho.

Anyidoho was charged with high treason for his call of a civil coup d’etat against President Akuffo Addo back in March.

Koku had said, “On 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”.

This led to his immediate arrest at the National Press Centre in Accra.

Anyidoho was granted bail on Thursday, March 29, 2018, after spending two nights at the cells of Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).

Speaking after his release, Anyidoho commended the police for their professionalism during his two-day encounter with them.

“The police did their job professionally and I want to congratulate them and thank them; the CID boss madam Tiwaa and her people. At least Ghana is working,” the Bull, as he is affectionately called within the political circles, told the media at his residence.

The Attorney General and Minister of Justice informed the Ghana Police Service that the state was no longer interested in the case.
