The National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Sammy Gyamfi has filed a police complaint against the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong for allegedly threatening his life.
Kennedy Agyapong on Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen show on August 4, 2020, is said to have threatened to organise thugs to physically assault Sammy Gyamfi.
Ken Agyapong issued the threat in response to Sammy Gyamfi’s claim that violence had marred the voters’ registration exercise in his constituency.
In a complaint filed on his behalf by his lawyers and addressed to the Director General of the of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Mr Gyamfi says the death threat was made by the MP in a broadcast on an Accra-based radio station.
“Our client informs us that Mr. Kennedy Agyapong, who happens to be the Member of Parliament for Assin Central and a leading member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), while on Accra-based Asempa FM’s radio programme ‘Eko Sii Sen’, on the 4th of August, 2020 threatened to cause harm and/or death to our client through thug under his control and direction,” the complaint reads.
“While speaking in the Twi language on the said programme, Mr. Kennedy Agyapong stated among other things that, if our client does proceed with his advocacy on national issues in a particular manner, he shall in a matter of three seconds organise his thugs to beat and/or finish our client mercilessly” (Enclosed herein in a copy of the video recording of the said program”.
The lawyers say Mr Gyamfi has since gathered intelligence which suggests that thugs have been contracted to carry out Mr Agyapong’s threat.
