The ongoing trial of Dr Frederick Mac-Palm, ACP Benjamin Agodzor and eight others, who have been accused of plotting to overthrow the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led NPP administration has taken a different turn as fresh revelations have been made by one of the coup plotters.

According to Sergeant Awarf Kojo Sule, of the Defence Intelligence Department of the Ghana Armed Forces, he suggested that President Akufo-Addo should be kept in “his uncompleted building” at Adenta Housing Down when captured in the alleged coup.

According to him, some key administrators at the Presidency were also to be captured during the coup.

Giving his testimony before a three-member panel of the court presided over by Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, the witness said “sometime between April and May 2018 WOII Esther Saan contacted me on phone and asked me to come to her house for a discussion.”

“I asked about the purpose of the meeting but she did not disclose same on the telephone conversation. So I went to her house at military academy training school, Teshie Camp. When I went there she informed me that a certain doctor wanted to meet us at Next Door beach for a meeting.”

“We drove in our separate vehicles to the said location. When we arrived I saw two people so we greeted and sat. The first person introduced himself BB alias Mr. Bright. Bright in turn introduced the second person as Dr. MacPalm, a doctor at citadel hospital, Alajo.”

“Afterwards doctor informed us about his plans to overthrow the sitting government. He pointed out how NPP and NDC have failed the youth of this country so that is why he requires our assistance to advance his plan. He asked WOII Esther Saan and I to recruit soldiers as personnel to facilitate the coup detat. He also promised us positions in his administration when he takes over power. The meeting lasted for about 30 minutes and we all departed after we had some drinks.”

He further confessed that he went to Col. Ansu (rtd.) at Ashaley Botwe the next morning to inform him about what had transpired between him, Dr. MacPalm and Bright.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Benjamin Agordzor, senior military officer. Col. Samuel Kojo Gameli and 8 others; Dr Mac Palm, Donyo Kafui, Bright Alan Debrah, Johannes Zikpi, WO II Esther Saan, Corporal Seidu Abubakar, Corporal Ali Solomon and Sylvester Akankpewubare are facing charges including High Treason.
