Former National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams has petitioned Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to invite preacher Rev. Owusu Bempah for alleging that some people have been contracted to kill President Akufo-Addo.
The popular preacher is alleged to have said on Oman FM that the NDC is plotting to assassinate the president and his vice Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as well as Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong and Chairman Wontumi.
Mr. Adams wants the CID to interrogate the founder of Glorious Word Power Ministry International to ascertain the veracity of his claims.
“The Rev. Owusu Bempah, a popular Ghanaian preacher alleged on the OMAN FM on the 28th of February 2019 on its morning show hosted by one Akua Asabea Croppa that certain persons have been contracted to kill the President and Vice-President of the Republic of Ghana. He further said had personal knowledge of the details of the plot and the persons behind it.”
The man of God last week told Accra based Oman FM that: ‘‘they have plotted to use every means to ensure that the president dies. The Vice President, Kennedy Agyapong and Chairman Wontumi are all included. They have plotted to assassinate 5 of us. Ghanaians should take this issue very serious.’’
‘’I know Ghanaians would ask if God revealed this to me…I will soon come to your station and give you details of where the meeting was held…A member of the NDC has also confirmed the issue to me and because of that, I am unable to step out. This is not due to fear but I am extremely shocked and alarmed that a former president would plot to kill a sitting president, his vice, myself, Kennedy Agyapong and Chairman Wontumi.’’
‘’The NDC member told me to be careful. I am also aware the plot was due to my promise to pray for President Nana Addo to ensure he wins the 2020 polls as revealed by God,’’ he said.
Mr Adams has made a copy of the interview available to CID.
