President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP) James Opoong Boanuh to provide former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu with 24 hour police protection over threat of harm against his person.
In a statement issued by the communications director at the office of the President Mr. Eugene Arhin on his Facebook page he wrote,
The attention of the Office of the President has been drawn to claims by Mr Martin Amidu, the former Special Prosecutor, of threats made against his life since his resignation from office. The President has, thus, directed the Inspector General of Police to provide Mr Amidu immediately with 24 hour police protection.
The former Special Prosecutor is also encouraged to assist the police with details of persons who have made these threats against his life, so that they can be dealt with in accordance with the laws of the country.
This statement comes on the back of a telephone conversation Martin Amidu had on Citi FM with Umaru Sanda Amadu over the brouhaha surrounding his resignation as the Special Prosecutor.
