BNI detains man for plotting to assassinate Mahama

The Bureau of National Investigations has detained one Kwame Gyebi, a resident of Dzowulu in Accra, after he was heard saying that President John Mahama would die on Independence Day.

He was arrested last Thursday, February 25 2016, by the police upon a tip off after he was overheard confidently saying the President will drop dead while delivering his speech on March 6 at the Independence Square during the usual parade of school children to mark the 59th Independence Anniversary of Ghana.

The confidence and certainty with which he was making the declaration alarmed a patriotic citizen who tipped the police off culminating in Gyebi’s arrest.

The police after initial investigations handed him over to the BNI. He is currently in their custody.

The BNI is conducting further investigations into the matter to ascertain whether Gyebi has accomplices or is working alone.

This comes after a 36-year-old man, Charles Antwi, was arrested during Sunday church service at the Ringway Gospel Centre of the Assemblies of God church where the president worships with a loaded gun but the President was not in church that day.
