The Accra High Court has ordered the Police Criminal Investigations Department to seize some essential electronic gadgets on which information related to the alleged treasonable comments made by Koku Anyidoho are said to be stored.
The items to be seized under the order include laptops, iPhones and ipads.
Justice Patience Mills Tetteh gave the order on Wednesday following an ex-parte motion issued at the court by the Police.
The order also permits the police to search and seize electronic devices of ‘agents’ of Anyodoho.
Police will now have full access to the residence of the embattled deputy general of the National Democratic Congress who was arrested on March 27 over comments he made suggesting an imminent coup d’état in the country.
Per the order the Police is to “search and make seizure” at the residence of Anyidoho who has already been cautioned by the police on offences related to causing fear and alarm and treason felony.
“It is hereby ordered that electronic gadgets including laptops, iphones and ipads believed to be storage of information related to treason in the premises of Koku Anyidoho and his agents are to be seized to aid police investigation of the said Koku Anyidoho,” the order dated March 28 and signed by the court registrar Issahaku Musah stated.
He has since been denied bail. Per Ghana’s 1992 constitution, Anyidoho can be held in police custody for 48 hours after which they will be required to arraign him on the charges.
