The National Communications Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has filed a criminal complaint against the legislator for Assin Central.
Sammy Gyamfi’s action follows alleged threats issued by Kennedy Agyapong during an interview on Asempa FM.
In the suit sighted by Ghananest.com and signed by AB&M Legal Consult, Sammy Gyamfi alleged that Kennedy Agyapong had threatened to cause him harm or death through thugs under his control and direction.
“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 organize his thugs to beat and or finish our client mercilessly”, part of the complaint read.
Citing the death of Ahmed Suale, Sammy Gyamfi said he was disturbed by the threats, hence the decision to formally report the issue to the police.
“Having regard to recent history and the notorious fact that a prominent investigative journalist by name Ahmed Suale was shot and murdered in cold blood by some unknown criminals following similar threats made on his life by the same Mr. Kennedy Agyapong; our client, as a law-abiding citizen feels compelled to formally write to you and lodge a complaint against the said Mr. Kennedy Agyapong.
“This will avert a possible repeat of what happened to the late Ahmed Suale when his life was threatened by Mr. Kennedy Agyapong on that very ‘Ekosisen’ platform and other media platforms.”
The NDC’s communicator is, therefore, requesting for investigations to commence into the conduct of Mr. Kennedy Agyapong in accordance with the Criminal Offenses Act of Ghana, 1960 (Act 29.)
