According to the Ghana Police Service, Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe aka Abronye DC, has been detained.

His detention came after he accepted a police invitation in connection with various coup plan claims he made against former President John Dramani Mahama.

“Preliminary investigation of his allegation has indicated that his assertions against the former President are incorrect and are likely to cause a breach of the peace,” the police say.

“He has been formally arrested and charged on two counts of Publication of fake news and Offensive conduct conducive to breaches of peace,” the police said in a statement.

The regional chairman will appear in court on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, according to the police.

Abronye’s presence was needed to assist in investigations into the claim he made during an interview on Hot FM, according to a police statement released early Tuesday.

He is said to have arrived at the Accra Regional Police Command at 2:40 p.m. and was interrogated about his assertions.

The party’s regional chairman claimed, among other things, that former President John Dramani Mahama conspired with Al Qaeda extremists to plot a coup in Ghana.
According to him, the former president has enlisted the help of Oliver Barker-Vormawor, the convener of the #FixTheCountry movement, to carry out the conspiracy through the social-political movement he heads.

Abronye was a guest on Agya Wusu’s political chat show “Dwene Ho Bio” on Hot 93.9 FM.

He made these claims in response to Oliver Barker’s recent detention for threatening to “conduct a coup” if the E-Levy bill currently before parliament is passed.

“Mahama and Al Qaeda collaborated to use this individual as a frontman. You’re aware that this man worked as a presidential aide under Mahama? When Mahama was president, Barker worked as a presidential aide. “Are you aware of that?” he inquired.
