    ACP Agordzo acquitted over alleged abetting to overthrow govt

    Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Dr. Benjamin Kwasi Agordzo who has been charged for abetting an overthrow of government has been found not guilty and has been acquitted.

    A three-member panel of the High Court presided over by Justice Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, a Justice of the Court of Appeal passed their judgement after the conclusion of evidence.


    On April 24, 2021 the AG while narrating the brief facts to the court said, Dr Mac-Palm and his colleagues belonged to an association called Take Action Ghana (TAG) and had planned to stage demonstrations, ostensibly to topple the government.

    He said in July 2019, the accused contacted a blacksmith from Alavanyo, in the Volta Region, to manufacture 22 explosives, six ammunitions and five pistols.

    The court heard that the manufacturer charged alleged accomplices GH¢2,300 as the cost of each pistol and GH¢400.00 for each explosive.

    He said on September 19, Dr Mac-Palm and Kafui were arrested after test firing at Teshie Military shooting range.

    The AG told the court that a search conducted in the premises of the Citadel Hospital revealed six unregistered pistols, one registered pistol, 22 explosives, three grenades, 63 rounds of ammunition, two empty AK47 magazines and other machines used in manufacturing weapons.
