The President of Ghana has directed the Inspector General of Police to provide Martin Amidu with 24-hours protection.
This follows Martin Amidu’s claims that his life is under threat as he has received threatening messages from people.
This afternoon the former Special Prosecutor disclosed to Citi FM that he knows of a plan to rob him and burn his house.
He then said everyone should blame the President if something happens to him.
The President has reacted to Martin Amidu’s claims by calling the Inspector General of Police to offer him protection.
“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 former Special Prosecutor is also encouraged to assist the police with details of persons who have made these threats against his life, so that they can be dealt with in accordance with the laws of the country.”
