Mahama reports NPP’s Abronye to CID over assassination claims

Abronye DC

A formal criminal complaint has been filed by ex-Ghanaian leader John Mahama against the governing New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Bono Regional Chairman, Kwame Baffoe, also known as Abronye DC.

Abronye is reportedly heard on a TV programme on Net2 TV in Accra that there was a plot by the former President to assassinate him and some members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Detailing how the operation will be executed, the former NPP Youth Organizer reportedly said on the programme that some NPP personalities will be assassinated by NDC hirelings doing the bidding of the former President.

In a petition to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service, Mr Mahama described the claims as untrue and hence demanded a full scale investigations into the matter. 

“His Excellency, John Dramani Mahama, has firmly instructed me to say that the allegations are, of course, false; and for the avoidance of doubt would like to state that neither the NDC nor he has planned to hire, hired or cause to be hired, or instructed any person or persons to murder or assassinate anybody,” the complaint signed by his lawyer, Tony Lithur reads in part.

The petition further pointed out that this is not the first time Abronye DC had “used similar platforms to denigrate and make scurrilous, outrageous and scandalous allegations against the NDC and former President John Mahama.”

Mr. Mahama expressed fears that Abronye’s accusations could expose him to attacks from his sympathisers.

He thus asked the CID to investigate the conduct of Abronye DC and his publication.
