A member of the communication team of the governing Patriotic Party (NPP), Hopeson Adorye, is disappointed at how the Police has handled the case involving the Brong the Ahafo Regional Chairman of the NPP, Kwame Baffoe, popularly known as Abronye DC.
Mr. Adorye said the accused is innocent of the charges levelled against him, and is going to prove it in Court today, Wednesday.
“The charges that have been levelled against him are unfair. He was minding his business when he was called from a Radio station to react to a comment another person had made.”
“How can this pass for misconduct? I am not a law student but I don’t think it does. I believe the IGP thought he spoke from the studio, but he did not. We are going to prove this to the IGP tomorrow [Wednesday]. He only said the mindset of Oliver is what Mahama carries. Isn’t that the case? Don’t they work together? They have the same vision.”
“After he was invited for questioning by the Police at 4:00 pm, he complied, he even reported 3 hours before time. What wrong did he do to merit detention? Why did the IGP instruct that he should be denied bail? This is unfair.”
The Greater Accra Regional Police Command detained Abronye DC on Tuesday after he honored an invitation extended to him to assist in investigating his claims that former President John Dramani Mahama was plotting a coup to return to power.
According to the Police, a preliminary investigation has established that his claims against the former NDC Flagbearer are untrue and likely to occasion a breach of the peace.
The NPP stalwart is alleged to have said that John Mahama had met with Al-Qaeda militants to engage them on how to topple the governing party.
Abronye DC, according to some media reports, claimed that Mr. Mahama approached the group in a bid to help him become president again.
The NPP communicator allegedly made the claim on Hot 93.9 FM in Accra, while responding to the arrest of #FixTheCountry convener, Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor.
