President Akufo-Addo orders 24-hour protection for Amidu

President Nana Akufo-Addo has directed the Inspector General of Police to provide former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu immediately with 24-hour police protection, Ghpage gathers.

The former Special Prosecutor Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu has claimed in an interview with Citi FM there are threats on his life following the release of his analysis on the Agyapa transaction.

According to him; “he tried to call Kan Dapaah, he didn’t pick it and I got a former national security advisor to contact him and tell him that, and I know the persons involved, I can name them but I reserve it for the meantime.

I put my life for the republic of Ghana and the president will be responsible for anything that happens to me”.

“The intelligence is there and I called the minister of national security but he didn’t pick and I got a former national security advisor to speak to him and this fact is now known and I say that the president will be responsible for anything that happens to me,
