Leading Member of the #FixingTheCountry Movement, Hopeson Yaovi Adorye, says he will never challenge the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) George Akuffo Dampare on his operating procedures after the latter issued orders for Kwame Baffoe alias Abronye DC to be detained.
Mr Adorye was earlier ‘angry’ with the police superior when Abronye DC, who is the Bono Regional Chairman of the NPP, was detained by the service after he had honoured an invitation extended to him.
The invitation was in relation to a coup plot he (Abronye) alleged ex-President John Dramani Mahama was involved in.
Not Picking Calls
Hopeson claimed the IGP had failed to pick up his calls after issuing the said order.
“IGP is not picking his call, in this case, IGP is the complainant and he has instructed that he (Abronye) should be detained and charged for court,” he told reporters.
Abronye DC is in police custody after failing to back his claims that the former President is in league with Al Qaeda militants and had met them in an attempt to stage a coup in Ghana; ostensibly to become president again.
The embattled NPP Chairman made the allegation on Accra-based Hot FM while responding to the arrest of the #FixTheCountry convener Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor on his attempt to stage a coup if Parliament passes the controversial 1.75% E-levy.
Hours after making those remarks after Abronye’s arrest, Mr Adorye, a failed NPP Parliamentary Candidate for the Kpone-Katamanso Constituency, beat a sharp retreat in a subsequent interview with NEAT FM’s morning show, ‘Ghana Montie’.
According to him, his earlier utterance was not to challenge the operational work of the IGP.
“I am not saying I disagree with the police on the arrest of Abronye. He (Abronye) goofed with the coup allegation on former President Mahama, it was not a continuous allegation, he just said it once….my issue is, why detain him for so long if he has been processed for court? Is this an issue of equalization?” he quizzed.
