Family of some of the persons accused of plotting to destabilise government have invoked their gods to intervene in the matter.
State prosecutors today, Wednesday, October 9, 2019, charged nine persons with treason felony for allegedly engaging in an “elaborate plot” to destabilise the government.
Pouring libation at the premises of a district court on Wednesday, relatives of a local gun manufacturer, said to be one of the masterminds of the alleged coup plot, called on all the gods in the Volta Region – where the suspect hails from – to strike down anyone who bears false witness against the accused.
“They are calling on the gods of Kpando, the gods of Avetime, the gods of Alavanyo to intervene that all those who will come and give false testimony against them [suspects], the gods should take care of them [persons who will give false testimony],” another relative explained the invocation during the making of libation in Ewe.
