Special Prosecutor Asked To Arrest John Mahama

Special prosecutor Lawyer Kissi Agyebeng has been asked to arrest former president John Mahama. This call was placed by a popular Ghanaian chief in the Eastern region called Nana Ateaoso Kokobeng II.

The member of the regional house of chiefs made the urgent call after the special prosecutor fined Labianca Company Limited to refund to the sate an amount of one million Ghana Cedis being tax evasion on the part of the company.

It will be recalled that the special prosecutor has been in the news both traditional and social media of late following a report he released on above subject. According to the report, Labianca company owned by Mis Eunice Jacqueline Buah Asomah, who is a member of the council of state representing the Western Region under declared it's imported frozen chicken for five years. In addition to the fine, the special prosecutor started thorough investigation into the activities of Labianca at the ports between 2017 and 2022 for possible criminal prosecution.

But Nana Ateaoso Kokobeng ll surprisingly got offended at the action of the special prosecutor. According to him Lawyer Agyabeng is deliberately targeting NPP appointees while those in NDC are walking. He said John Mahamaa looted the state yet the special prosecutor is afraid to go after him. He challenged the lawyer to do the needful by arresting and prosecuting the former president before he takes him serious. Until then wherever the special prosecutor does will be considered a witch hunt to this chief.

"I am very disappointed in the Special Prosecutor for chasing Labianca. Instead of him to arrest John Mahama for stealing a lot of Ghana’s monies he has left him and he is walking freely. If the SP has made up his mind that he will only attack NPP members then he will not succeed because the real criminals of the NDC are still walking free. I challenge him to arrest John Mahama. This is what he ought to do and not to go after the government that appointed him", Nana Kokobeng stated in Twi on Wontumi radio intercepted by CitizenOne.


But the chief has been sweating after making that unpopular comment. Social Media is not taking it kindly with him at all. According individuals who reacted to the post, the chief is a disgrace to the chieftaincy institution. Some even called for his removal from the stool. Check some comments below.

Michael Nii Nortey: "A whole chief came out and spoke like this? I am highly disappointed in those who enstoled him as chief and he is a disgrace to where he comes from.

How can those we follow talk like this? He should resign from the stool or be removed immediately"

Christopher Astu Gawuga: "I reserve my comment until further research into this matter. I am surprised if a chief can speak and make such utterances in that manner. So I will investigate this before any comment."

Kingdavid Zisah: "Some of these men are stomach and uneducated selfish politicians. I think he need more education and advise so he can coil in his comments regarding the former president. Criminal Syndicators."

Abdu Zango: "He's part of those people that connived with the Akyem sakawa mother serpent and the 'mate meho' miscreants and let foreign mercenaries to train NPP vigilante fool soldiers in our forests together with some chiefs and the security agencies."

Baba Omar: "Eeeeei Ghana where are we going as a country? Hmmmm. But I am not surprised because even a Supreme Court Judge campaigned for president re-election"

In a related development, the owner of Loudsilence TV, Kelvin Tailor has alleged that the report from the special prosecutor is nothing but a cover up for the NPP government. He said the syndicate at the port goes beyond Labianca and that the chief of staff and other stakeholders are involved. The special prosecutor singled out Labianca in order to protect the Jubilee House.

He made these allegations on his 'with all due respect' show on LSTV monitored by CitizenOne. According to Kelvin, the amount the Special Prosecutor claimed to has retrieved is laughable. He disclosed that Labianca imports up to 30 containers of frozen chicken into the country every month. "But per the amount reportedly retrieved, the special prosecutor is telling us that between 2017 and now, Labianca imported just 10 containers", he stated. Kelvin called on the CEO of Labianca to resign from council of state so she can come out with the whole truth.
