President Akufo-Addo with Martin Amidu

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has directed the Inspector General of Police to, with immediate effect, offer 24-hour security protection to former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu.

This directive from the President follows claims of threats made against Mr. Amidu after he stepped down from his office earlier this week.

In a statement from the Director of Communication at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin said:

“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.”

Additionally, Mr. Amidu has been asked to provide the police with details of persons who have issued him such threats.

“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.”
