Koku Anyidoho Charged With Treason, Refused Police Bail

The Police Criminal Investigations Department has charged the deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress Koku Anyidohu with treason, and refused bail.

His lawyer, Victor K. Adawudu confirmed the charge on TV3’s News360 almost 8 hours after the Police CID in Accra picked him up for interrogation over comments he made suggesting an imminent coup d’état in the country.

“We’ve been told that he’s being investigated for treason” he said, indicating his client was then made to give a statement on the matter after which he was charged but was declined bail.

“After the statement the police are telling us they’ve not received instructions to bail [Koku Anyidoho]. We don’t really work with instruction. What does the law say?” his lawyer stold Alfred Ocansey

The NDC firebrand, Koku Anyidoho, suggested in a radio interview Monday, March 26 that there would be ‘civil revolt’ and ‘civilian coup d’état’ in the country from Wednesday, March 28.
