The tough-talking
policeman who is not enthused with his continuous detention in the custody of
the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), prayed to the court to keep in
police cell at the Nima Police Station in order to have easy access to medical
attention.

The former Director of the
Transformation Office of the Ghana Police Service, through his lawyer Martin
Kpebu said his client was unwell and wanted to be close to the Police hospital
where he could receive swift medical attention if need be.

He faces charges of Abetment
to Commit Crime; namely, Treason Felony contrary to section 20(1) and 182 (b)
of the Criminal and Other Offences Act 1960 (Act 29).

The embattled Senior
Police officer on his first appearance told
journalists that President Akufo-Addo asked Ghanaians to be citizens and that
is what he did by expressing his opinion.

“I have not committed any crime. I’ve done nothing wrong. The
President called upon us to be citizens.” he said.

“So
when I express my opinion on a WhatsApp platform, unrelated to any alleged
coup, nobody should bog me down.”, he added.

The police officer who appeared calm said he is not perturbed because he knows in the end he will be vindicated. He also expressed appreciation to the media for the support.

down at all. And I’m as strong as anything. Thank you very much for your
support.”
