The prosecution witness, Colonel Isaac Ambonsa, told the Accra High Court that members of Take Action Ghana (TAG) had planned to arrest the President, Vice-President, Speaker of Parliament and Chief Justice.

During questioning in the case of ACP Benjamin Agorzor and nine others, Colonel Amponsa said the plan was to capture the four dignitaries on an occasion when they were all present.

The Director of Operational Intelligence in the Ghana Armed Forces Defense Intelligence Department, Colonel Ambonsah, said: “On the 5th of July, there was a conversation between Dr. Mac Palm and a BNI informant who infiltrated the TAG, and Dr. Mac Palm provided details of everyone. The plan including closing 66th Artillery Regiment and Jubilee House, and indicated that they would block all exit and entrance routes so that Ofori Atta and all the great dignitaries could not escape.”

Colonel Ambonsah, answering questions from the lawyers of five of the accused, Victor Kogoja Adaudu, insisted that the group was also planning to bomb the National Communications Authority (NCA) to shut down all radio stations.

He further stated that Dr. Mac Palm “also talked about the arrest of the President and referred to a mission that took place in the North.”

Colonel Ambonsah explained that the informant was not familiar with the equipment, stressing that “if you watch the videos, because the equipment is not configured, the dates on the video do not match.”

ACP Agordzo and Dr Mac Palm, along with eight others who allegedly played various roles in an attempt to destabilize the country, have pleaded not guilty to four counts.

The 10 defendants, who had earlier been released on bail for high treason, were re-arrested by the NIB and charged with conspiracy to commit high treason, high treason and abetting.

The charge of high treason is higher than the previous treason charge, and the hearing was presided over by three Supreme Court justices headed by Judge Afia Serwa Asari Butui.

All the accused are said to belong to TAG.

In June 2018, the security services picked up intelligence about the organization’s alleged plan to overthrow the government and usurp the executive authorities.
