A Security Analyst, Mr Ibrahim Sulley has laughed off government’s claims that the eleven persons who have been arraigned before court and remanded were plotting to stage a coup d’état.
According to the Mr Sulley who is also the Head of Programmes for the African Center for Security and Counter Terrorism, the narrative by the Information Ministry still sounds like a ‘joke’ as it lacks concrete evidence.
To him, there was no way the coup could have been successful without the backing of the Military as the ring leaders.
“For a coup to be successful it has to get the backing of the military but the difficulty is that, they did not position the military as leaders but rather they were supporting civilians as their leaders,” he argued.
He said he would have taken the coup plot seriously if it emerged that the Military were actually the one leading the coup.
“We would not doubt because they have the capacity to take over governance or leadership of the country, they have the technology and warfare ideas of which civilians do not have,” he said.
Eleven persons including Military officers have so far been arrested for their alleged involvement in a coup plot.
Three persons were earlier arrested, charged in court and remanded for plotting to destabilize the country.
They are Dr Frederick Yao Mac-Palm, Dornyah “Ezor” Kafui, a local weapon manufacturer and Bright Allan Debrah Ofosu aka BB or ADC, freight manager.
