A former National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kofi Adams has petitioned the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to invite preacher Rev. Owusu Bempah for alleging that some people have been contracted to kill President Akufo-Addo.
The popular preacher is alleged to have said on Oman FM that the NDC is plotting to eliminate the president and his vice Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
“A certain meeting has been held and I want to talk about that meeting that was held on this station. I am saying this as Owusu Bempah I have seen. That they have hired people to kill me. And they have said that they would do whatever is in their power to eliminate President Nana Akufo-Addo, as well as the vice president and our Papa Kennedy Agyapong and Chairman Wontumi. In total they are 5 people. Ghanaian should take serious note of what I am saying,” Bempah, who is close to Nana Addo allegedly said.
Mr. Adams wants the CID to interrogate the founder of Glorious Word Power Ministry International to ascertain the veracity of his claims.
“The Rev. Owusu Bempah, a popular Ghanaian preacher alleged on the OMAN FM on the 28th of February 2019 on its morning show hosted by one Akua Asabea Croppa that certain persons have been contracted to kill the President and Vice-President of the Republic of Ghana. He further said had personal knowledge of the details of the plot and the persons behind it.”
Mr. Adams also made a copy of the interview available to the investigative body for further interrogation.
His petition follows a recent invitation to a popular radio broadcaster Salifu Maase of XYZ radio who alleged on his show that an investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni’s life is in danger for exposing the operations of a militia group linked to the ruling New Patriotic Party.
