- An MP, Derek Ohene Bekoe Asifo, has opened up about a plot to kill him
- According to him, some powerful people want him dead, so that they would organize a by-election
- He added that there is no assurance of any particular person winning the by-election if he is dead
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Upper West Akyem, Derek Ohene Bekoe Asifo, has stated that there is a plot to kill him.
According to a report by Ghanaweb.com, he explained that the aim is to organize a by-election in his constituency.
Speaking on Adom FM, he explained that the plot started about a week ago, and it made him wonder why people would go to such lengths simply for political reasons.
Asifo went on to say that an eavesdropper informed him of the plot soon after it was hatched, and he has since been in a state of shock.
He added that he is at loss as to why some people are thinking of a by-election when the sitting MP has neither resigned nor passed away.
“In this country, we take things too personal. Some people will go to the extent of trying to eliminate others.
I was there yesterday when someone came to me and while we were chatting, he asked when the Upper West Akyem by-election would come off.
He heard this when some people met to plan, and did not know he was part of the meeting to hatch that diabolic plan”, he revealed.
Asifo further disclosed that some prominent people are involved in the plot to eliminate him, so that they can take over his seat.
He however argued that there is no guarantee that the one interested in his seat will win it if there is a by-election.
