Agordzor on hunger strike; set for court today

ACP Dr. Benjamin Agordzor, who has been charged with Treason by the state over his alleged role in the alleged coup plot is set to face court today, Wednesday November 6.

He will be arranged before the Kaneshie district court.

But his lawyer martin Kpebu says the district court is incapable of granting him bail in such matters.

” The decision to take him to the district is unfair because that court does not have the power to grant him bail in treason matters. So if the BNI does not grant him bail themselves, the district court cannot. What the BNI is doing is unconstitutional and unfortunate,” he told Starr News.

Also revealed his client has refused to eat while in thed BNI custody.

” He says he will not eat until he is granted bail”.

Mr. Agordzor has been charged with abetment for treason by the state after he was invited for questioning on Monday. He is currently on detention at the BNI.

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.
