The police further urged the public to remain quiet as they continue with investigations in the discharge of our duties.Meanwhile, lawyers of Mr Anyidoho are making frantic efforts to secure bail for the suspect.

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service picked up Mr Anyidoho on Tuesday, 27 March, for inciting civilians to launch a coup detat against the Akufo-Addo government.

Mr Anyidoho was picked up at the Press Centre in Accra where he and several other opposition leaders belonging to the Progressive Forces, were holding a news conference, to condemn the government for signing a security cooperation deal with the United States of America.

CID officers wielding guns, stormed the press conference to pick up Mr Anyidoho amidst chaos and resistance from several other people who were at the presser.

Mr Anyidohos arrest follows indications by Minister of Information Mustapha Abdul-Hamid that Ghanas security agencies must invite the NDC politician over his comment.

Mr Anyidoho told Happy FM on Monday, 26 March that: Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.

On the January 13, 1972 a definite Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong led a movement that removed the Progress Party from power. Busia was the Prime Minister and Akufo-Addos father was a ceremonial president. Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.

Therell be a civil revolt. Therell be a peoples movement. During President John Mahamas tenure didnt we receive similar threats from the likes of Let My Vote Count and OccupyGhana.

Therell be a civilian coup detat; therell be a social revolution and the movement is starting on Wednesday. He [Akufo-Addo] will be fed up at the presidency, Mr Anyidoho said.
