Martin Kpebu, a private attorney who represents Dr. Benjamin Agordzo, the acquitted Assistant Commissioner of Police (Rtd), has requested that his client be given a five-year contract appointment with the Ghana Police Service as restitution.
On January 24, the High Court found ACP Agordzo, Colonel Samuel Kodzo Gameli, and Corporal Seidu Abubakar, a junior military officer, not guilty of treasonous charges.
According to Mr. Kpebu, Dr. Agordzo will be able to restore his lost dignity and carry on the beneficial work he was doing for mother Ghana thanks to the contract appointment.
“He retired sometime November last year. So, he may not be able to go and continue in the Police Service, except they give him a contract. And I think in terms of reparation, that’s what President Akufo-Addo should do. Having destroyed the man and his family like this, the least he can do is to say, IGP Dampare, please look in there and give Agordzo a contract, let him come and continue the work he was doing. He was Director of Transformation. Let him come back and contribute for the next five years.
It will not solve all the problems, the destruction. It will not make him regain everything he’s lost, but at least, it will rehabilitate him a bit, because they’ve destroyed him on frivolous evidence,” on the January 24th episode of Ghana Tonight on TV3, Mr. Kpebu provided clarification.
He claimed that they are getting ready to sue the government for malicious prosecution.
Six people have been found guilty by the High Court of high treason conspiracy and high treason committed in relation to an alleged coup plot.
These six people have been given hanging death sentences by the court.
Blacksmith Donya Kafui, also known as Ezor, and fleet manager Bright Alan Debrah Ofosu are among the guilty parties.
They were found guilty of both treason and conspiracy to commit treason. A civilian employee of the Ghanaian Armed Forces named Johannes Zikpi was found guilty of planning to commit high treason.
