Ken Agyapong freed! at last

By on

104975341_222430An Accra Circuit Court has acquitted and discharged Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North, who was standing trial for attempted treason.

The decision was taken on Tuesday after lawyers for Mr. Agyapong argued for submission of no case at the last hearing.

His lawyer, Ayikoi Otoo, filed a submission of no case on April 25, 2013 after the state concluded its case. He argued the state had not made out its case; Mr. Agyapong, therefore, had no case to answer.

The state prosecutor, Rexford Wiredu, opposed the motion, but the presiding judge, Ebenezer Osei Darko, dismissed the case.

The MP was facing charges of attempted treason, genocide and terrorism after he was alleged to have made tribal comments on Oman FM, a private radio station owned by him.

He was arrested on Monday, April 16, 2012 after he was invited by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service over statements he allegedly made on his Accra-based radio station, Oman FM.

He was alleged to have “declared war” and vowed to lynch any fake security operative following the alleged physical attack on Ursula Owusu, the MP for Ablekuma West, and Abu Jinapor, a former aide to the 2012 NPP flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo; at Odododiodoo during the biometric registration exercise.

Anny Osabutey reports that, at today’s sitting, the Court cleared Mr. Agyapong of all charges.
