Kennedy Agyapong

Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has described the three men arrested by state security apparatus for plotting to target the presidency as ‘jokers’.

“In today’s era of modernisation, you want to go and carry out a coup? They are jokers! They are joking and see the equipment they were hoping to use, what will you get from it?” he quizzed.

Three people, picked up by state security agencies on suspicion of engaging in “an elaborate plot targeted at the Presidency,” have been slapped with five charges.
