The fate of Koku Anyidohu keeps darkening as the government has issued an official report, describing the "coup comments" made the deputy general secretary "treasonable".

Koku Anyidohu had described the demonstration as a "civilian coup" saying that the move by President Akufo-Addo to sign the US-Ghana military cooperation deal is a sign that his administration will soon be overthrown.

The maverick politician believes that Ghana's political history will soon be repeated and that Nana Addo "will end up like his father, who was overthrown together with Dr. KA Busia in 1972."

Government's emergency press statement against Koku Anyidohu raises questions over the charges that could be slapped the maverick politician especially when treason, according to the 1992 Constitution, is punishable by death.

"Section - 180 Treason. (1) Whoever commits treason shall be liable to suffer death. (2) For the purposes of this section, "treason" shall have the meaning assigned to it by clause (3) of Article 3 of the Constitution."
