A renowned lawyer who is also a member of the ruling NPP yesterday told the 'Daily Post' the claim by Mr. Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko that President Akufo-Addo will not be happy with the arrest of Frank Appiah, popularly called Appiah Stadium, cannot be true.
Hours after Appiah Stadium was arrested at his home in Kumasi by the police reportedly for allegedly claiming in an audio that the President smokes wee, Gabby took to his facebook page to say President Akufo-Addo will not be happy with the arrest. He writes;
“These things shouldn't happen. I can see the President being extremely unhappy about any citizen being arrested for allegedly insulting him. It goes against all that he stands for. I may not be privy to the details but I know whatever the justification, the President will not like this one bit. He could have been invited without the handcuffs. Very unnecessary; uncool.”
However, the legal luminary, speaking to this paper under strict condition of anonymity for obvious reasons said Gabby’s claim is a lie.
“If the President was against the arrest of Appiah Stadium, all he would do is phone the IGP and order his release. That is all. The President will order his release and not keep quiet and allow Appiah to be brought all the way from Kumasi to Accra in handcuffs” the lawyer said.
