President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has instructed the Inspector General of Police to provide former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu with 24 hour police protection.
This was made known in a Facebook post by the Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin.
“The attention of the Office of the President has been drawn to claims by Mr Martin Amidu, the former Special Prosecutor, of threats made against his life since his resignation from office. The President has, thus, directed the Inspector General of Police to provide Mr Amidu immediately with 24 hour police protection.”
The president further urged the former Special Prosecutor to assist the security agencies with all relevant information for further action.
