Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu says there are threats on his life and property, saying, President Akufo-Addo should be held responsible if he is harmed.
According to him, the said threats comes after his work on the Agyapa Royalties deal adding that, it has all been reported to the National Security Minister.
“I tried to call Kan Dapaah, he didn’t pick it and I got a former national security advisor to contact him and tell him that, and I know the persons involved, I can name them but I reserve it for the meantime. I put my life for the republic of Ghana and the president will be responsible for anything that happens to me.
“The intelligence is there and I called the minister of national security but he didn’t pick and I got a former national security advisor to speak to him and this fact is now known and I say that the president will be responsible for anything that happens to me,” he said in an interview with Citi FM 72 hours after his resignation.
He added, “Anyone who tries to fight corruption must be aware from the beginning that corruption will fight back and all that is going on is corruption fighting back and it’s demonstrating that the whole issue about fighting corruption is only rhetoric and the time of reckoning has come. And nobody should push me because if I decide to respond, I will do so without fear or favour even to the extent of losing my life for speaking the truth and defending the Constitution of Ghana.”
“Now I am a private citizen and nobody can control me and I have the constitutional right to defend myself and the Constitution of Ghana as by law established. All these threats of murdering me and burning houses, I am aware…I know the persons behind it and the President will be responsible for anything that happens to me,” he told Umaru Sanda Amadu.
