Founder of the Atta Mills Institute, Koku Anyidoho has disclosed that he was tagged a traitor after he refused to insult the police after he was arrested by officials of the Bureau of National Investigations over his coup d’etat comments in 2018.
“They called me names when I decided not to insult the police, I became a traitor and was called names. We spend too much energy getting angry thinking we are destroying someone but ourselves,” he disclosed.
To the Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, his arrest was an experience and lesson which made him strong.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show, he said though he was confused about the series of events, he decided not to get angry.
“I remembered Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison and must have been tortured at a point in time, but came out strong and once I was not tortured in my 48 hours, I decided to move on,” he said.
Mr Anyidoho was arrested over his comments believed to have incited the citizenry to stage a coup and unseat President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
