Wife of the senior Police Officer who has been charged with treason says their children are extremely traumatised.

In an interview on NEAT FM’s morning show 'Ghana Montie', Mrs Patience Agordzo said her 17-year-old daughter who visited her father at the BNI headquarters on Tuesday broke down in tears after seeing the senior Police Officer, ACP Dr Benjamin Agordzo.

She told host Akwesi Aboagye that her traumatised daughter later asked if the meeting with her dad will be the 'last on earth'.

“She asked me, mum, will they kill my father?” Mrs Patience Agordzo cried.

Adding that "our children didn’t know what to say when they saw their father on Tuesday. They are so down that they cannot utter a word with the guys crying like girls. The girls who are also in school called and began asking questions if their dad is going to be killed...It is very sad.”

ACP Dr Agordzo who is the Director of Transformational Programme Office at the Ghana Police Service has been in BNI custody since he reported himself on Monday afternoon.

ACP Dr Agordzo was arraigned on Wednesday over the charge of abetment to commit treason felony.

State prosecutors are alleging that ACP Dr Agordzo drafted a protest speech for a group that was allegedly scheming to take over the reins of government illegally.
