Accra, Ghana – The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson has sued Mr. Kennedy Agyapong his colleague MP representing Assin Central at the Accra High Court over the latter’s claims that he [Ato Forson] is hatching an assassination plot of the Minister of Gender Affairs.
The Kennedy Agyapong who is an MP of the New patriotic Party (NPP) had alleged that the Ranking Member on Parliament’s Finance Committee, the National Democratic Party’s (NDC) Ato Forson, had solicited the services of some suspects to execute the botched assassination attempt on Cynthia Morrison, the Minister of Gender.
The two suspects were apprehended by the Police a couple of days ago.
Speaking on Accra-based Net 2 TV on October 26, the Assin Central MP (who also doubles as owner of the Net 2 Media outlet), alleged that the suspects had revealed to the police that they were sent by Cassiel Ato Forson to undertake the act.
“The boys mentioned Cassiel Ato Forson’s name to the police. Why is it that the police would not like to speak the truth? Ato Forson gave the boys to the parliamentary candidate Paul Ofori Amoah.
“The parliamentary candidate is very calm but Ato Forson did that. He should come out and challenge me,” Kennedy Agyapong said.
Kencity Media Ghana Ltd, owners of NET2 have been sighted as second defendant in the case.
Kennedy Agyapong is expected to file an Entry of Appearance in eight days according to the writ signed on October 27.
His default of filing an appearance would mean that judgment may be given in his absence without further notice to him, according to the writ read.
The Assin Central MP is currently embroiled in a contempt case at the Supreme Court after he allegedly went on live television to use unprintable words against a High Court judge.
