    Coup plot: I didn’t know when, but I knew how it was going to end – ACP Agordzo

    Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Dr. Benjamin Agordzo has expressed confidence in his acquittal, stating that he knew he would be cleared from the outset of the legal proceedings in the coup plot case.

    The High Court in Accra convicted six individuals involved in the coup plot, sentencing them to death by hanging for conspiracy to commit high treason and committing high treason.

    ACP Agordzo, along with Colonel Samuel Kodzo Gameli and another junior military officer, Corporal Seidu Abubakar, were acquitted.

    A joyful ACP Agordzo and his family celebrated the verdict by waving and singing in praise to God.

    In his first statements after the acquittal, ACP Agordzo, speaking to Citi News, expressed his unwavering confidence in a positive outcome, despite uncertainties about the trial’s duration.

    He remarked, “Our God doesn’t fail,” and revealed that he always knew how the trial would conclude, likening it to watching a movie replay with someone.

    Responding to how he felt, ACP Agordzo said, “I have always been free within my heart. I have always been free because I knew how it was going to end. From the beginning, I knew how it was going to end today. I didn’t know when it was going to end, but I knew how it was going to end. It is like watching a movie replay with somebody.”

    The six individuals sentenced to hanging, including three soldiers and a civilian employee of the Ghana Armed Forces, were found guilty of conspiracy to commit treason and treason.

    The background of the case involves charges against Dr. Frederick Yao Mac-Palm, the CEO of Citadel Hospital (now deceased), and ACP Dr. Agordzo, along with eight others.

    They were charged in April 2021 with conspiracy to high treason, abetment to high treason, and high treason. The charges against the accused varied, including conspiracy to commit high and high treason, with ACP Dr. Agordzo initially charged with abetment.
