The Member of Parliament for Upper West Akim constituency, Mr Derek O. Bekoe, has clarified on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, the assasination plot against his life was being orchestrated by the ruling New Patriotic Party 9NPP).
Speaking to Kwabena Agyapong following an interview he had granted Accra based Adom FM, he said, the assassination plot was held by some NPP persons at a secret meeting in his constituency.
It was reported that the MP had said some NDC persons were plotting to kill him but he has indicated in an interview with Rainbow Radio that, the plan to have him assassinated was orchestrated by NPP persons and was disclosed to him by another person who was present at the meeting.
He has planned to report the case to the police for them to investigate the matter because he has confirmed the intelligence and would not waste time in informing the police.
“I want the persons involved to be aware that I have heard they want to kill me. They have plotted this twice and so I wold not waste time on it.”
He has also disclosed to the host of Frontline that a prominent person in power and senior member of his political opponents, is the one behind the scheme and from what he has gathered, the person is well resourced, powerful and influential enough to executive the plot.
