Alleged Coup Plot: ACP Benjamin Agordzor Back In BNI Cells after Court today

After court proceedings Wednesday morning An Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Dr. Benjamin Agordzor, who has been charged with Treason by the state over his alleged role in alleged coup plot has been remanded by the Kaneshie district court

He told journalists after the court proceedings that "I have not committed any crime. I've done nothing wrong. The President called upon us to be citizens. So when I express my opinion on a WhatsApp platform, unrelated to any alleged coup, nobody should bog me down. And I will stand for this. I will stand for this to the end. They cannot break me down at all. And I'm as strong as anything. Thank you very much for your support."

But his lawyer martin Kpebu says the district court is incapable of granting him bail in such matters.

“The decision to take him to the district is unfair because that court does not have the power to grant him bail in treason matters. So if the BNI does not grant him bail themselves, the district court cannot. What the BNI is doing is unconstitutional and unfortunate”.

ACP Agordzo has since his arrest refused to eat and according to his lawyer, Martin Kpebu, is to protest against the violations of his rights at the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) cells.

“His wife prevailed upon him but he said ‘No’, he is not going to eat. He is abhorred at how the BNI is treating him,” he revealed.
