The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Wednesday March 28 invited Happy FM to assist the department in investigations for a ‘treason’ comment made by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Deputy General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho on one of the station’s flagship shows.
During an interview on Happy FM‘s Epa Hoa Daben show on Monday, March 26, Koku Anyidoho predicted that President Akufo-Addo is bound to suffer the fate of his father -Edward Akufo-Addo- and K.A. Busia who were overthrown as President by a military coup.
He said, “Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.”
“On January 13, 1972 a certain Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong led a movement that removed the Progress Party from power. Busia was the Prime Minister and Akufo-Addo’s father was a ceremonial president. Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself,” he added.
“There will be a civilian coup d’état. There will be a social revolution. We [NDC] are starting it on Wednesday. The movement is starting on Wednesday. Nana Addo will have sleepless nights. He will suffer diarrhea. He said he wanted to be president but we will make sure he will be fed up on the seat,” he said.
Following the comment, Koku Anyidoho was picked up by armed policemen at the Press Centre on Tuesday in Accra moments after a press briefing on an intended demonstration over the Ghana-US military defence cooperation agreement.
Anyidoho was escorted on foot to the CID headquarters a few metres away from the press centre.
He was accompanied into the facility by the NDC General Secretary Asiedu Nketiah and National Chairman Kofi Portuphy to the Police Headquarters.
However, officials of the Accra based radio station, Happy FM, honoured the invitation by the CID and according to them, they are willing to help the CID in any way possible.
