CID arrest NDC's  Koku Anyidoho over coup comments

CID arrest NDC's Koku Anyidoho over coup comments


Remember Mr Koku Anyidoho? Yeah, The man who went viral after claiming John Mahama was in a comfortable lead in the 2016 elections. He's also the  Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress and has been arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service after he predicted a civilian coup d’etat to unseat President Akufo-Addo.

Mr Koku Anyidoho was picked up by armed policemen at the Press Centre on Tuesday in Accra moments after a press briefing on an intended demonstration over the Ghana-US military defence cooperation agreement. About 16 officers besieged the Press Center to effect the arrest.

Koku Anyidoho was escorted on foot to the CID headquarters a few metres away from the press centre.

He was accompanied into the facility by the NDC General Secretary Asiedu Nketiah, NDC National Chairman Kofi Portuphy and PNC Chairman Bernard Mornah.

Meanwhile, a crowd of NDC sympathisers are currently massing up outside the CID headquarters.





What did Koku Anyidoho say

Mr Koku Anyidoho in an interview on Accra-based Happy FM said President Akufo-Addo suggested that President Akufo-Addo was likely to suffer the fate of his father who was overthrown as President by a military coup in 1972.

“Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself,” the NDC firebrand said.

“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,” the former presidential spokesperson opined.



Mr Koku Anyidoho added: “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.”

Parliament approves US ‘military base’ deal

Parliament approves US ‘military base’ deal

Parliament has approved the Ghana-US defence cooperation agreement which seeks to provide a space in the country to host some US military troops.

The approval was done by only Majority Members of Parliament because the Minority staged a walkout during the debate on the Floor of the House on Friday night.
“This House adopts the report from the joint committee on defense and interior,” the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Oquaye said after the approval.
Prior to staging the walkout, the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu spoke for close to 17 minutes giving a litany of reasons why they believe the agreement should not be ratified by Parliament.
He however urged Majority to approve the agreement without them saying “you [the Majority] can cowardly approve the agreement” without the Minority.

According to a lawyer for Unibank, Dr Dominic Ayine said they are no longer going that way 

He, however, insist they still have issues with how the whole process was carried out.

“Well, it is not about not having a case to be made, because a case could definitely be made in terms of the way the Bank of Ghana served the notice and the manner in which it conducted its affairs.”
