- A member of Koku Anyidoho's legal team has revealed that he advised Mr. Anyidoho to comply with authorities

- He said authorities planned on detaining Mr. Anyidoho over the Easter holidays
Mr. Chris Ackumey, a member of Koku Anyidoho's legal team, has revealed that police sought out a court ordered search warrant in order to confiscate and search his electronic devices.
It appears that on Wednesday, March 28th, following Mr. Anyidoho's arrest the day before, members of the Ghana Police Service requested a search warrant in order to go through the high ranking NDC officials electric devices.
"They [police] wanted to have access to his [Koku] phone to find out whether he was in contact with mercenaries from South Africa or Hungary to come and train forces, whether visible or invisible to topple the regime of Nana Akufo-Addo and that kind of thing.”
Mr. Ackumey went on to say that when police officers realized that Mr. Anyidoho's phone was locked with a password, and that they were unable to search the phone.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM on Wednesday, Mr. Ackumey expressed that he was confident of his client's innocence, and said he advised Koku Anyidoho to comply with authorities when they asked him to provide the phone's password.
“…there was a password on the phone and there was nothing they could have done, so they came back and wanted Koku to give them the password so that they can go and have access to the phone. So I, as the lawyer of Koku, convinced that, there is nothing untoward on the phone.... I advised my client to give them the password, which he did.”
According to Mr. Chris Ackumey, one of Koku Anyidoho's lawyers, revealed that police initially planned on detaining Mr. Ayidoho over the Easter Holidays by deliberately sending him to a lower court, which would inevitably ensure his detention over the holidays.
"What we heard was that they are preparing to keep him for Easter, so they are planning to send him to the District Magistrate Court, which will decline jurisdiction because the District Magistrate Court has not got the power for treasonable offences. So if they go there, that will give them the opportunity to keep him over night, that has been leaked over to us..."
