Law Lecturer, Lawyer Moses Foh Amoaning has described as ‘unwise’ former President John Mahama’s decision to petition the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to probe what led to the demise of President John Evans Atta Mills.
President Mahama through his lawyer, Tony Lithur said Abronye DC has accused him and some members of the NDC of plotting to kill some NPP personalities including his accuser (Abronye DC).
These allegations, according to the letter, were made by Abronye DC in a TV programme on NET2 in Accra.
According to the letter, Abronye DC also accused Mr Mahama of killing his former boss, the late President John Evans Atta Mills.
Mr Mahama, in his letter, said the allegations are false.
The Police have subsequently invited Abronye DC to respond to the charges leveled against him by the former President.
The invitation letter published by GhanaNewsPage.Com asked Abronye DC to come to the CID Headquarters on Thursday, 21st May, 2020 at 10:00am.
“The Special Investigation Unit (SIU) of the CID Headquarters has commenced investigation into a case of an alleged publication of false news reported by His Excellency the Former President, John Dramani Mahama against you…,” part of the invitation letter read.
Commenting on this on Oman FM monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com, Lawyer Foh Amoaning said he was shocked the former President is asking for probing late President Mills’ death at this time.
“I don’t think petitioning the Police to investigate the death of Professor Mills at this time, an election year is a very unwise decision…,” he said.
To him, the decision would not inure to the benefit of the 2020 NDC Flagbearer politically.
“I am not sure six months to a major election, President Mahama would want probe into former President Mills’ death to dominate the airwaves…this would dominate the airwaves for about five months and not quite sure President Mahama want that…,” he added.
