Click to read all about coronavirus →

The Bono Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe popularly known as Abronye DC has claimed the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is behind the "attempted coup" to destabilize this country.

The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, in a statement released noted that, “On Friday, 20th September 2019, a joint security operation of personnel drawn from Defence Intelligence, CID and Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), conducted a successful operation which led to the arrest of three persons and the retrieval of several arms, explosive devices and ammunition from locations in Accra and Bawaleshie near Dodowa.”

“The joint operation was to neutralize an elaborate plot targeted at the Presidency, and with the ultimate aim of destabilizing the country.”

“The arrest and seizure come after fifteen (15) months of surveillance and gathering of evidence on the activities of the prime suspects and others.” The statement added.

They include; Dr. Frederick Yao Mac-Palm and his two accomplices – Mr. Ezor Kafui (a local weapon manufacturer) and Mr. Bright Allan Debrah Ofosu (aka BB or ADC).

But in a statement issued and signed by the NPP's controversial chairman, Abronye DC, and copied to the media, he accused the NDC of being behind the coup plot.

According to him, the NDC in a crunch meeting at John Mahama's residence planned to arrange lawyers for the three accused persons.

"...Now, according to Information available to me and per my intelligence gathered, I can confidently say that big wings of the National Democratic Congress are behind this plot", the statement claimed.

"I say so because, yesterday in a crunch meeting at John Mahama’s residence which saw in attendance high profiled persons of the NDC including Julius Debrah, Omane Boamah, etc... the NDC planned to arrange lawyers for the three accused persons", the statement added.

According to the statement, "The NDC also planned to preach that, the government rather acted prematurely in concluding that the persons were planning a coup".

The statement revealed that "In that meeting, the NDC planned that, they would like their legal team to defend the suspected coup plotters but they would not like to use known lawyers in the NDC to defend these accused persons".



"Members present at the meeting including James Agalga pointed that, they should allow Edudzi Temakloe defend the accused persons but Julius Debrah, however, rejected this proposal and added that, Edudzi is one of the aides to President Mahama and that, that decision will affect John Mahama. Julius Debrah then proposed Lawyer Victor Adawudu to defend the accused persons", it added.

The statement quizzed that "My point here now is, what interest does the NDC have in this matter for them to arrange lawyers for the accused?"

The statement, therefore, stated that the NDC has started executing their plans of destabilizing this country as has been allegedly said by their National Chairman, Ofosu Ampofo.

"NDC is executing their plan of destabilizing the country as noted by Ofosu Ampofo", the statement emphasized.

The statement concluded that "Let’s all watch out for NDC. They are desperate for power and we can’t trust them. They are treacherous people in disguise".

Below is the full statement

Kwame Baffoe Abronye Writes!

REVEALED: NDC BEHIND COUP PLOT

Security Agencies in Ghana last Friday arrested some three persons suspected to be plotting a coup.

A statement from the Information Ministry on Monday gave the names of the suspects as: Dr. Frederick Yao Mac-Palm and his two accomplices – Mr. Ezor Kafui (a local weapon manufacturer) and Mr. Bright Allan Debrah Ofosu (aka BB or ADC).

The Information Ministry added that the plot was foiled following a 15-month investigation of the attempted operation.



Now, according to Information available to me and per my intelligence gathered, I can confidently say that big wigs of the National Democratic Congress are behind this plot.

I say so because, yesterday in a crunch meeting at John Mahama’s residence which saw in attendance high profiled persons of the NDC including Julius Debrah, Omane Boamah, etc... the NDC planned to arrange lawyers for the three accused persons.

The NDC also planned to preach that, the government rather acted prematurely in concluding that the persons were planning a coup.

In that meeting, the NDC planned that they would like their legal team to defend the suspected coup plotters but they would not like to use known lawyers in the NDC to defend these accused persons.

Members present at the meeting including Hon. James Agalga pointed that, they should allow Edudzi Temakloe defend the accused persons but Julius Debrah, however, rejected this proposal and added that, Edudzi is one of the aides to President Mahama and that, that decision will affect John Mahama. Julius Debrah then proposed Lawyer Victor Adawudu to defend the accused persons.

My point here now is, what interest does the NDC have in this matter for them to arrange lawyers for the accused?

Let’s all not forget that the lead suspect Dr. Fredrick Yao Mac-Palm is a known NDC activist who has consistently attacked this government on social media channels.

NDC is executing their plan of destabilizing the country as noted by Ofosu Ampofo.

Let’s all watch out for NDC. They are desperate for power and we can’t trust them. They are treacherous people in disguise.

Thanks
