Court grants CID permission to ‘scan’ Anyidoho’s phones, gadgets

Information gathered by Atinkaonline indicates that the CID has secured a court warrant to search and scan Koku Anyidoho’s phones, laptops and other gadgets for evidence.

Ghana Police Service has assured the public that they will follow due process after charging the Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, with treason felony following his arrest.

The police further urged the public to remain calm as they continue with investigations “in the discharge of our duties”.

Meanwhile, lawyers of Mr Anyidoho are making frantic efforts to secure bail for the suspect.

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service picked up Mr Anyidoho on Tuesday, 27 March, for inciting civilians to launch a coup d’etat against the Akufo-Addo government.

Speaking on the issue, Mr Anyidoho told Happy FM on Monday, 26 March that: “Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.

“On 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.”

“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,” Mr Anyidoho said.

More soon.
