Kwame Asare Obeng, known as rapper A Plus has debunked reports that he refusing to honor the Criminal Investigations Department’s invitation, to answer questions on his recent corruption allegations.
A Plus has been a trending news topic this week as he made several claims of alleged corruption at the Presidency, involving some presidential staffers.
His claims have also been backed by the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong who also pointing fingers at some officials of government for engaging in corrupt activities.
A Plus was on Thursday, August 31 supposed to report to the CID headquarters to elaborate on his accusations, but failed to show up at the meeting.
According to him, his lawyer who was supposed to accompany him was not ready.
He stated that he had indeed wanted to speak with the CID, but he was advised to only attend the meeting with his legal counsel present.
Taking to his Facebook page to further explain the situation, A Plus said he is a citizen who is well aware of his rights, as he was only offering information and is not under investigation.
“You don't know your right as a Ghanaian. Oh!!! Sorry for you. I'm a witness. I have information to give police. I told them when I'll come. I'm not under investigation. I've not been charged with a crime. I told police when I'll come. Know your right my people. Don't allow police to hunahuna you!!” A Plus wrote.
A Plus had earlier welcomed the CID’s invitation to probe into his allegations, stating the move is the proof that President Akufo-Addo is living up to his promise of investigating all allegations of corruption in his government.
The rapper is still expected to honor the invitation, and will reportedly do so early next week.
