Mahama, Abronye cross swords over Mills death, Others

Must Read

ABC News Ghana is an investigative media house that focuses on politics, sports and the economy. Our work is thoroughly researched, balanced and fair. Our vision is to become the most preferred indigenous news brand for men in West Africa.

Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama and the Bono Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe Abronye, are at each other’s throats over allegations of who and how former President John Evans Atta-Mills died.

In a letter written on 6th May, 2020, to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service, lawyer for former President Mahama, Tony Lithur, alleged that the maverick NPP kingpin has accused Mr. Mahama of being the mastermind of Mills’ death.

The letter to the C.I.D by Tony Lithur alleged further that Abronye published the said false news on KenCity’s Net2TV Network. This, Mr. Mahama said, has the tendency to disturb public peace.

Mr. Mahama is, therefore, asking the C.I.D to summon Abronye and investigate his claims with the view to prosecuting him for such ‘malicious’ lies against the former president.

However, in a letter sighted by ABC NEWS from the NPP’s firebrand, Kwame Baffoe has written to the C.I.D Headquarters indicating that no official letter or notification alleging such claims as contained in Mr. Lithur’s letter has come to him. He indicates further that he only saw the said letter from lawyer Tony Lithur on social media.

In his view, Kwame Baffoe Abronye insists that such a frivolous matter should warrant any cause as demanded by the former president. He has, therefore, asked the C.I.D to treat the matter with the disdain it deserves.

“I do not think trite law and common sense permits the Police Service to investigate a statement made by a person with unhinged mind and for this reason, the police service has no reasonable and fitting cause to even consider the letter in circulation on social media” Abronye wrote.

The NPP’s Bono Regional Chairman wondered why Mahama would accuse him of making inflammatory remarks when he is second to none in that department. Citing the former President’s recent comments on the current leadership of the EC in which he said Jean Mensa would be held responsible for Ghana being plunged into a war, Abronye cannot comprehend why such a fleeting statement was made without evidence yet nothing has been done to Mahama.

Kwame Baffoe states in his letter to the C.I.D that he has ample evidence to prove that plans were mooted by the former president and his assigns to assassinate him and would avail same to the police if the need arises.

If Mr. Mahama is counting on Abronye to render an unqualified apology to him for raising issues with his role in the death of Mills, it would appear that he would have to wait a while longer if not forever since
Abronye does not appear to be in tune with his demands.

Kwame Baffoe Abronye asks the C.I.D to throw Mr. Mahama’s letter to them into the dustbin since it is unmeritorious.
