Reliable sources from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have said security guards of former President John Mahama, a few days ago, busted an unnamed soldier from the Defence Intelligence section of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) who was inching close to the former President with a concealed loaded gun.
The suspect was reportedly tackled and disarmed by ex-President Mahama’s bodyguards, Whatsup News gathered.
NDC insiders say they will not rule out a potential assassination attempt on John Mahama who has refused to concede defeat to the declared President-elect, Nana Akufo Addo. John Mahama has vowed to fight against a stolen verdict from a presidential election that were reportedly rigged against him.
This curious incident involving the stealth reconnaissance by the Defence Intelligence officer has also been confirmed by Kwesi Pratt Jnr, the Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper who has easy access to ex-President Mahama.
“How come that a soldier from Defence Intelligence went to John Mahama’s office with a concealed loaded weapon? What was he intended to do?” Kwasi Pratt queried on Saturday.
Pratt indicated that the issue was being swept under the carpet by some powerful people in the society but now that “the matter is out; we can’t keep quiet over it”.
“Where is the weapon? What has happened to that case? We want to know,” a disturbed Kwesi Pratt Jnr. asked.
“How did he manage to enter the office? Where is the gun which was concealed on the body? Is the police investigating this matter and how far has the investigation gone? We want to know?” he stressed.
Whatsup News has seen a picture purported to be of the would-be assailant. His full name and rank are unknown, however, on his name tag, his last name is “Dekpey”.
Meanwhile, no official statement has been made by the NDC about the incident yet.
Whatsup News can report that any potential hit on the NDC flagbearer will throw Ghana into an uncontrollable civil uprising because already, nationwide street protests have erupted in anger against what a cross-section of the citizenry suspect to be the rigging of the December 7, 2020, presidential election for the incumbent Akufo Addo by the Electoral Commission (EC).
Over six million people voted for John Mahama and according to the EC, was some 400,000 votes short of President Akufo Addo’s, and these people may consider harm to ex-President Mahama an act of war and may react with unpredictable consequences, observers have told Whatsup News.
