Kwabena Agyapong fights Kumasi Lawyer; demands GHC200k compensation


    Embattled General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Agyei Agyapong has demanded a retraction and an unqualified apology from a Kumasi-based lawyer, Kwame Adofo who described him as the Judas Iscariot in the party.

    The private legal practitioner during a panel discussion on Ultimate Fm in Kumasi accused Mr Agyapong of leaking information about the party to his pay masters in other political parties describing his action ‘political suicide’.

    Lawyer Adofo who is against the reinstatement of the suspended NPP scribe, said :” ‘Kwabena Agyapong is a Judas of NPP, no way should he be reinstated…after Judas regretted what he did, he threw the money away and hanged himself. Kwabena Agyapong has committed a political suicide, he’s finished as far as the NPP is concerned, he’s better of joining the NDC if he is to have any future. But as far as NPP is concerned, he is finished, how can you trust somebody who compromised you when NPP was in opposition, and now that the party is in power.

    ‘What else can’t he do, when he is going to sit in cabinet, are you going to trust that he will not leak information to former President John Dramani Mahama and his brother, Ibrahim Mahama, that is a disaster, its serious. I am telling you now, he’s the Judas of NPP, put me on record, the moment you bring him back, your party is finished”.

    But in reaction to the claims through his lawyers, Mr Agyapong described them as defamatory demanding a retraction, an apology and a compensation of GH¢200,000 before Tuesday, October 31, 2017.
