Former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Deputy General Secretary, Samuel Koku Anyidoho has responded to Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a flagbearer hopeful for the New Patriotic Party allegation that he orchestrated the treason charge against him in 2012.

According to him, he never orchestrated his incarceration so Kennedy Agyapong should focus on his campaign and leave him out.

He said, the Assin Central MP’s attitude to express strong opinions very directly without worrying if other people are offended dug his own grave.

“Someone should please tell Kennedy Agyepong to focus on his campaign and leave me out of it. I never orchestrated his incarceration: it is his own mouth that orchestrated it. By the way, did he orchestrate my incarceration? I slept in the cell & same mattress he slept on” Koku Anyidoho tweeted.

Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a flagbearer hopeful for the New Patriotic Party, has accused former National Democratic Congress Deputy General Secretary, Samuel Koku Anyidoho, of orchestrating the treason charge against him in 2012.

Addressing delegates of the NPP in the Hohoe Constituency on Sunday, June 11, 2023, Kennedy Agyapong claimed that the former Director of Communications at the presidency orchestrated a campaign portraying him as anti-Ewe, leading to his arrest and subsequent charge of treason.

“I was charged with treason. Koku Anyidoho incited the media against me, saying, ‘Kennedy Agyapong says they should go and kill Ewes.’ By five PM, the police had surrounded Oman FM. I reported myself the next day. I was there when Koku Anyidoho called from Prof. Mills’ office for them to charge me with treason, and they did because I was defending NPP,” alleged the flagbearer hopeful.

Kennedy Agyapong faced charges of attempted treason, genocide, and terrorism in 2012 after allegedly making tribal comments on Oman FM, a private radio station owned by him. However, the charges were later dropped, and he was charged with lesser offenses of conduct conducive to the breach of peace and causing fear and alarm.

In April 2013, a circuit court acquitted and discharged Kennedy Agyapong of all charges.
