I Have Lived Under Death Threats Since 16 November 2020 – Martin Amidu


Martin Amidu, the former Special Prosecutor, has claimed that he has been subjected to threats of assassination since November 16, 2020. He alleges that senior officials authorized individuals to harm him at his residence on Monday.

Amidu asserts that the government has been consistently targeting him ever since he was removed from his position as Special Prosecutor. In a statement released to the press, the former Attorney General and Minister of Justice mentioned that Victor Newman, a founding member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), foiled an assassination plot against him.

“As I said in November 2020, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, is ultimately responsible for anything violent that befalls me or my residence. I shall not back down from defending the 1992 Constitution, as I am enjoined to do as a citizen of Ghana. No Ghanaian patriot must be cowed by the threats of those violating the Constitution, he wrote.

Amidu made these remarks in response to news that the NPP had cautioned its communicators against attacking Dormaahene Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II’s character after he criticized the government and the Supreme Court’s handling of the case involving James Gyakye Quayson, the Member of Parliament for Assin North.

“The distinguished and eminent Chief of the Dormaas is lucky that the communicators attacked only his personality on air, and their superiors have seen the danger it poses for the NPP in the 2024 elections. In my case, Nana Akufo-Addo’s undercover operatives and agents were unleashed on my residence at the dawn of yesterday, Monday 3 July 2023,” he said.
