Ace Security Analyst and Executive Director of Security Warehouse, Adam Bonaa has urged the immediate past Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu to stop throwing tantrums and report to the police if indeed his life was being threatened.
According to him, throwing tantrums all over doesn’t take away the supposed threat on his life adding the appropriate and first thing to do in such a situation was to report to any nearest police station.
Mr. Bonaa was speaking on [email protected] on TV3 about an interview Mr. Amidu made earlier with Citi TV’s Umaru Sanda.
“If Martin Amidu says his life is being threatened, that is not to say, am belittling the threat on his life, he should go to any police station to make a report. If you have any remedial measures to take, he can do so but he is first to go to the police and make it formal.”
He indicated that Nana Addo is neither the IGP nor a Police officer, so is the National Security Minister, Mr. Kan Dapaah.
He indicated that the state does not owe Mr. Amidu any special security arrangement as far as he was concern and urged him to be an example to the younger generation who looked up to him and do the right thing.
“Martin Amidu cannot be treated special from the rest of Ghanaians. The constitution only made provision for the President and others to be granted security protection, Mr. Martin Amidu has resigned his office and the state doesn’t owe him any such protection”.
He described the government’s decision to assign him 24hours protection as absurd.
My life is being threatened – Martin Amidu
Mr. Martin Amidu on Thursday, November 19, in an interview with Citi TV’s Omaru Sanda indicated that there has been a series of threats against his life since he left office.
According to him, he personally called the National Security Minister, Mr. Kan Dapaah to speak to him about the threat on his life but he refused to answer, indicating he sought the help of a former security adviser to speak to the Minister.
“All this threat about burglary me, arm robbery, burning my house, am aware, I try to call Kan Dapaah, he didn’t pick it and I got a former Security Adviser to contact him and tell him and I know the persons involve and I can name them.”
He noted that the President has the constitutional right to protect his life as such if anything should happen to him, the nation should blame the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo but added that he doesn’t want any security men to follow him or guard him at his house.
