Security Agencies in Ghana last Friday arrested some three persons suspected to be plotting a coup.
A statement from the Information Ministry on Monday gave the names of the suspects as: Dr. Frederick Yao Mac-Palm and his two accomplices – Mr. Ezor Kafui (a local weapon manufacturer) and Mr. Bright Allan Debrah Ofosu (aka BB or ADC).
The Information Ministry added that the plot was foiled following a 15-month investigation of the attempted operation.
“On Friday, 20th September 2019, a joint security operation of personnel drawn from Defence Intelligence, CID and Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), conducted a successful operation which led to the arrest of three persons and the retrieval of several arms, explosive devices and ammunition from locations in Accra and [Kpone] Bawaleshie near Dodowa,” the statement added.
The statement said the three had tried contacting a number of serving military officers to help in the attack.
“Surveillance on the activities of the persons involved commenced in June 2018, when Dr. Mac-Palm and Bright Allan Debrah Ofosu (“BB” or “ADC”), started organizing a series of meetings at the Next-Door Beach Resort, in Teshie, and other locations in Accra, in furtherance of their objectives.”
