Koku Anyidoho’s arrest by armed men obviously disproportionate - Mahama
Former President of Ghana, HE Dr. John Dramani Mahama

Former President of Ghana, HE Dr. John Dramani Mahama has stated in his Facebook post condemning the high handed police response to innocent citizens at the CID Headquarters yesterday when the deputy general secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho was arrested.

Koku Anyidoho was arrested in a rather dramatic fashion during yesterday, when an explosive audio which captured him making seditious comments and inciting civilians to launch a coup d’etat against the Akufo-Addo government, went viral.

A dozen armed men in pickups and a V8 vehicle besieged the premises of the Ghana International Press Centre in Accra at about 1:25 pm Tuesday afternoon to effect the arrest of the NDC capo.

He refused to sit in the police pick-up and was escorted on foot to the CID headquarters, a few metres away from the press centre, accompanied by the NDC General Secretary Asiedu Nketiah and National Chairman Kofi Portuphy.

Koku, it is understood, was at the Press centre together with other NDC Executives and several other opposition leaders belonging to the Progressive Forces, to hold a news conference to condemn the government for ratifying a security cooperation deal with the United States of America.
