Coup plot: ACP Agordzor denied bail


The Director of the Transformation Programmes Office of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Dr Benjamin Agordzor who is suspected to be part of the group of persons who were planning a coup d’etat in the country has been remanded into BNI custody.

The ruling by the Kaneshie Magistrate Court follows arguments by the Lawyers that the court lacks the jurisdiction over the case.

The presiding judge after hearing the submission by the Lawyers for the Police officer adjourned the case to Friday, November 8, 2019 to determine whether the court has jurisdiction over the case or not.

ACP Agordzor has been charged with treason following claims that he was an active member of Take Action Ghana (TAG), the group which was allegedly plotting the coup d’etatt.

Speaking after he was denied bail, ACP Agordzor said he hasn’t committed any crime as he is been accused of.

According to him, he expressed his opinion as a citizen on a WhatsApp platform which was unrelated to the alleged coup.

“These charges are frivolous. I’m as strong as anything. I’m not going to be bogged down. I have not committed any crime; I have done nothing wrong. The president called on us to be citizens so when I express my opinion on a WhatsApp platform unrelated to any alleged coup nobody should bog me down and I will stand for this till the end. They cannot break me down.” He declared in court
