ACP Benjamin Agordzor, the police officer in court over his alleged involvement in an attempt by a group to topple the current government has been admitted to bail.
He is alleged to have offered some assistance to the leader of the alleged coup plotters, Dr. Frederick Yao Mac-Palm, and some other suspects to execute their alleged plan, an allegation he has flatly denied, stressing that he hasn’t committed any crime.
ACP Agordzor was charged with 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) and remanded in police custody.
A number of applications for bail for the officer have been unsuccessful.
A bail application filed by his lawyers, led by Mr Martin Kpebu was refused by an Accra High Court presided over by Justice George Boadi on grounds that he has the capacity to influence the investigation process given his status.
