I prevented Adams Mahama’s arrest – Kwabena Agyepong

The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party Kwabena Agyepong has revealed that he prevented the late Upper East regional chairman of the party, Adams Mahama, from being arrested and detained after Mahama attacked him and National Chairman Paul Afoko with over 30 ‘macho men’.

Agyepong, who was speaking with some executives in the Ashanti region last week, said the police had to disperse Mahama’s ‘macho men’ with tear gas.

Mahama died May 21, after he was showered with acid by some unidentified men. The gruesome attack came days after Mahama allegedly led some thugs to scuttle a planned meeting by Afoko and Agyepong in the region.

Two people have so far been arrested in connection with the acid attack.

In a secretly recorded tape played exclusively on Kasapa FM Monday, Agyepong is heard saying he had to beg the regional police commander from detaining Mahama after he disrespected the police commander.

“Adams arrived at the Police station with 30 macho men and that one I saw it physically…the police had to use tear gas at the police station to disperse the crowd.

“After a while, the police kept insisting that Adams says he wants to see us…and we told the Police that he is the regional chairman, we came here because of him, so let him come if he wants to come alone.

“He entered the room, sat on one side; I was seated at the other side and the Police commander on his desk so the commander asked him ‘so regional chairman what is the problem – ask them’ [Mahama’s response], so the commander also flared and said how can you come to my office and disrespect me [this way], the police commander was so angry, he took his water bottle and threw it at Adams and said he would beat him up but the Police in the room separated them.

“In fact the Police Commander wanted to detain him and arrest him but I said, ‘commander if you arrest this man and detain him, they would say me and Paul have come to the region and [caused his arrest] so we beg you let him go”.
