Dr Benjamin Agordzo was on
Tuesday granted a self recognisance bail
to the tune of ¢500,000 by the Accra High Court pending a trial presided over
by Justice Charles Ekow Baiden who ordered
the embattled police chief to submit his passport to the Court Registrar.
Earlier there were reports the
state intended appealing the bail but he was subsequently released and reunited
with his family and wrote an article thanking those who lend their support to
him in silence.
Home at last. Dear colleagues and friends, just to inform you that I’m finally
home reunited with my family after almost three months incarceration at BNI,
cells and IGP’s custody.
It’s been a whole world of
experience and I like to thank God for bringing me this far; my counsel and his
team for standing by me with their knowledge and skills in law practice; and
those of you who believed in me and supported me in various ways. My special
thanks go to my wife, family and the Chiefs and people of Vakpo for their
massive support. I appreciate you all.
I was particularly strengthened
by the fact that even thousands who had never set eyes on me believed that I
couldn’t have done what I was being accused of. These sentiments were expressed
in various social media platforms.
For the millions who silently
went on their knees regularly to intervene for me, God richly bless you. Your
prayers were not in vain. I know you’ll continue to remember me in your
prayers. The Lord of hosts is on our side and it’s not over until it’s over.
I like to assure those who have
believed in me that I believe in democratic values such as rule of law, human
rights & constitutional rule. These are the things that drive the passion
Having spent about 6 years of my
life in peace keeping missions in Sudan, Somalia and Haiti and witnessed how
conflicts have ravaged those counties, I will be the last person to do anything
to derail the strides we’ve made in democratic development.
Be assured that I love my country
so dearly I can never ever do anything to disturb the relative peace we enjoy
This is what I stand for and I’ll never exchange this for anything else
Thank you one more time and God
bless. Still counting on your prayers.
