A case of threat of death against former Ghanaian leader John Mahama is being probed by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ashanti Regional Police Command.
The CID has invited one Gabriel Agah, a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), based in Kumasi to assist in their investigations.
In a radio interview widely circulated in Kumasi, Mr Agah is reported to have threatened to behead the former President should he endorse the EC’s decision to compile a new register for the December 7 elections.
According to the Police, he made the “intemperate statement on a private radio station called Oyerepa (Good Wife) FM based in Kumasi on May 30, when national issues were being discussed, including the EC’s plans to compile a new biometric voters’ register for the December 2020 general election.”
On the same program, Mr Agah, who is believed to be the founder of a group called “Friends of Atta Mills” in the region also predicted amid swearing that “this 2020 general election, if Ghana does not experience civil war it means there will never be a civil war in the country”.
He is to report to the CID office on Tuesday, June 30 at 10 am, a police invitation letter addressed to the NDC party Regional Chairman noted.
The NDC Chairman, has thus been ordered to produce Mr Agah at the said date and time.
The development comes after the country’s Apex Court gave green light to the EC to compile a new register after the opposition party filed a suit to challenge the decision.
