- Asiedu Nketia says Koku Anyidoho's 'rambo' style of arrest is politically motivated
- The top NDC man says Anyidoho's arrest push NDC supporters to pour onto the street
The Chief Scribe of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia (aka General Mosquito), has opened up about the arrest of the party’s deputy General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho.
According to General Mosquito, the arrest of his deputy by the Police CID will be a fertile ground for NDC supporters to pour onto the street in protest on Wednesday.
Speaking to Accra-based Joy FM shortly after the arrest, Asiedu Nketia insisted that Mr Anyidoho’s arrest exposes the culture of intimidation by the Akufo-Addo led New Patriotic Party administration.
“Anyidoho is fine and great, his arrest is much ado about nothing,” General Mosquito told Joy FM in an interview.
When asked why his deputy was arrested, Asiedu Nketia said no reason was given and wondered why his colleague will be arrested for unstated reasons.
Though the top NDC ranking member did not answer whether the comments by Anyidoho were appropriate, except to say that the NDC was in "crisis" as a result of the arrest and will not comment any further.
Koku Anyidoho was picked up Tuesday afternoon in a dramatic fashion at the International Press Centre by officials of Police CID where he was to address a press conference.
A Myjoyonline.com report says Anyidoho’s arrest has something to do with his recent comments suggesting that President Akufo-Addo will be overthrown just like his late father.
The NDC deputy General Secretary was reported to have told Happy FM in an interview that, “On January 13, 1972 a certain Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong led a movement that removed the Progress Party from power. Busia was the Prime Minister and Akufo-Addo’s father was a ceremonial president. Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.”
