Abronye DC Arrested, Billed For Court Wednesday – Police

Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has been arrested and detained by the police.

Kwame Baffoe, popularly known as Abronye DC, has been charged on two counts of publication of false news and offensive conduct conducive  to breaches of the peace.

He reported himself to the Greater Accra Regional Police Command to assist in investigations and was subsequently arrested.

This follows an invitation extended to him by the Ghana Police Service in a statement issued earlier in the day.

The invitation was occasioned by a comment he (Abronye) made in relation to a coup plot he claimed ex-President John Dramani Mahama was involved in.

According to Abronye DC, the former Persident is in ties with Al Qaeda militants and had met them in an attempt to stage a coup in Ghana to become president again.

He 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.

A statement signed by DSP Juliana Obeng of the Public Affairs Unit of the Accra Regional Police said; “preliminary investigation has established that his claims against former President [Mahama] are untrue and likely to occasion a breach of the peace.”

“In view of this, he [Baffoe] has been formally arrested and charged on two counts of publication of false news and offencive conduct conducive to breaches of the peace.”

He has therefore been detained and will be arraigned before court tomorrow Wednesday, 16th Feb., 2022, the statement added.
